Not much of a weekend to rewind

I usually like to do a weekend rewind on a Monday and post what I got up to on the weekend, but alas I got up to absolutely nothing except grocery shopping.

That’s right, even though Mother’s Day was  yesterday still nothing happened.  Not even breakfast in bed (which might I add is free).

The kids have been home sick so no school crafts to bring home, I don’t really expect them to remember what day it is but you would think with all the ads on television “someone” might have reminded them to at least give me a cuddle.

I tried not to care but I did.  I know it is over commercialised and my kids don’t have to tell me they love me on one day of the year, but seeing all the photos on instagram of mothers day cards and gifts and lunches I was feeling rather left out.

I know we have all been sick and we had KFC for tea last week because I was too sick to cook, but just a tiny bit of effort wouldn’t have gone astray.

So here are a couple pictures of my kids who I adore, and who I know love me, even if they forget to say it.

This morning

Actually it began Sunday night, after my husband had so kindly not bothered to get me anything for Mother’s Day so I went to K-Mart in search of Kerri Sackville’s book, When My Husband Does The Dishes.  Unfortunately for me I could not find it at the K, and seeing as it was 8pm nothing else was open.

So after dropping the kids off at school this morning I headed straight into town to Target to find it.  After several minutes wandering around I found it on the top shelf (I’m rather short so it took me a while) and off I went to the checkout.

I headed back to the car but the window of a cafe enticed me so I put some money in the meter and went and had a WHITE HOT CHOCOLATE, which is not real chocolate, but you would know that if you know anything about Kerri.

My little man played with the toys (yes a cafe that is child friendly hurrah) while I had my drink and giggled through the first few pages of the book.
