Happy Mothers Day!!!

I had a lovely day with the boys.  The highlight was a ‘concert’ they performed at night.  Summersaults, Lion King songs, tickets they’d had their father forge etc. My favourite Mother’s Day yet. Felt very blessed.

My best friend will be having a baby on Monday. Expect that I’ll be visiting her and my sister in hospital at the same time!!!

We had an afternoon tea at Shingle Inn in the Town Hall to celebrate

- the oldest cafe in Brisbane (they have fitted the Town Hall with the original cafe).

Food was ordinary, but friends and atmosphere were A+++.

I finally had cause to wear my Game of Thrones balero.

The Brisbane Mayor sat in a booth at the back.  These two did not care.  They disgraced themselves, rolling around the floor as though they were at a kindy gym.  Youngsters these days..

I will be visiting my father in hospital at the same time as the newborns.  Sadly, he had a minor stroke last week (the expressive area of his brain was effected).  He seems to be making a speedy recovery. At 82, he’s already had 9 lives.  He broke his neck 15 years ago, has had several knee/hip replacements, heart stints etc.  No doubt he’ll be riding horses and flying planes again in no time.

Had a teddy bears picnic with the kindy on the weekend.  Those kindy mums sure know how to bake.

Were you spoilt on Mothers Day? Did you ever make concerts for your parents when you were growing up?  Ever have reason to visit multiple people in the hospital at the same time?  Take care x

    Lovely Mothers Day for you! Nice to see darling Dudley, too. How old is he now?
    There’s some big and stirring emotions seeing photos of oldies with babies in their arms. Life hits home doesn’t it with that photo. xxx wish your dad well.
    Very excited for your sister.
    Have been very lucky regarding hospitals in this arm of the family. Nothing to report there. Thank goodness.

    I just noticed the Shingle Inn in Paddington has closed (which I am happy about as I generally dislike chain options). I hope that something good goes in that space…I still miss Lark and their delicious fries!

      Agree re chain options, although there’s something special about the original Shingle Inn at the Town hall!
