An Ordinary Sunday

... but with pleasant surprises. : ) On Mother's Day this year, we didn't go out for any meals (had breakfast, lunch and dinner at home) as we foresee big crowds at restaurants. Moreover, it's a good idea to stay home as CE is still recovering from his ear infection.

So what are the surprises? A bouquet of carnations and a pendant from PaPa. He's always so sweet to shower me with gifts when he doesn't need to. And I feel quite bad as I've not bought him any gifts for a long long time already. It's very difficult to get him a gift as I'm a practical person (so I don't buy things which are not useful). Furthermore, he has better taste than I do (so I don't trust my fashion sense in getting him anything that can be worn/used). hehehe

Oh, I also received a card from XY (done in kindy) on Friday. She came home that day, gave me the card and wished me Happy Mother's Day. Inside the card, her teacher asked her to write "To Mum, Happy Mother Day, I Love Mum". She wrote all the words herself. I won't be showing it here coz I can't capture a clear picture as she used a very light colour to write the words. Moreover the teacher didn't prepare a nice artwork for them this year. I think it was because they were having exam week last week and they did the card the week before (in a rush, probably?). Anyway, shouldn't be complaining much ya. At least, I still got a card. ; )

Well, no matter where you go, no matter what you do, as long as it's spent together happily as a family, I'm sure it was a great celebration. Don't you agree?
