Mothers Day Treat...

The first treat this morning was finding lovely weather outside! The next is obviously Sophie's little surprises for Mummy's Day as she likes to call it. The card above she made at school and must have taken quite a while to do. It is lovely and bright! At school they have little gifts that the children can choose from for a £1. It was wrapped up with white wallpaper and a little label made by Sophie and had BEST MUM on a heart. It is a little like a charm bracelet. Can not get an in focus shot of it, too small.
Hubby and Sophie had also been to Monsoon (my fav clothes shop) and found a double mirror compact to go in with the rest of my collection.
This photo came out quite well. The colours are lovely and it already has pride of place in the cabinet.
Due to the lovely weather we have decided to put off wallpapering one wall of Sophie's room and go out on our bikes. We are going to cycle from Wadebridge to Padstow which we did last year. Laat year Sophie rode in a little wagon attached to the back of hubby's bike, this time she is going to have a go at cycling the distance herself.
Have a great day.
PS We have just got back from the Camel Trail. I am really proud of Sophie (slushy Mummy moment) she cycled the 5 miles with only a 5min break and then cycled back in one go without stopping!! We are now home and she is watching CBeebies while I type this and hubby is cooking dinner. It has been a glorious day! I hope the rest of the week pans out just as well.
Take care all.

PP.SS The Stash Busting Sale went ok and there was a constant dribble of people. My cards, pincushions etc went down well and I did come back with less than I went with. It was a good day to chat to friends that I do not always get a chance to talk with. Sophie helped and really enjoyed it especially the little play area outside the hall. There may well be another one at Christmas near St Ives but we shall have to see. I may do that even though it is a fair way as I have never taken part in a Christmas Fair and it could be good fun.
