mama's day

Barefoot, I picked my mothers' day flowers on the grass 
- tiny yellow cups and periwinkle blues.
I drank earl grey tea in my wide-rim cup and saucer.
I adventured solitary to the fresh produce markets and came back with some favourites: brioche, yoghurt, asparagus, rhubarb, raspberries...
(a brunch of french toast and a marvellous salad ensued)
I soaked in blue sky, and sunshine on my knees -
I didn't do any lanudry or washing-up.
I planted seeds and took a long bath.
Such a lovely, happy day
with squeals of delight from my baby boy -
with soft kisses from my Love.

I am so glad to be a mama, it is the best thing.
I am so blessed to have my beautiful maman,
and my dear belle-méres Ev and Jenny,
my granny Nancy,
and all your mamas out there -
happy happy day to you too 


  1. Happy Mother's Day! <3 <3 Much love.

  2. That day sounds like poetry! Happy Mother's Day to you darling lady. (And I love that you didn't do any laundry or washing up - LOVE IT)!
    Love to that delicious looking baby of yours - I am loving being able to witness (via this blogginess!) your motherhood unravelling with such grace and proficiency! Love to you xx
