Sunday 2 March 2008


As you can see from the photo, I've been utterly spoilt with beautiful flowers from the children and Grumpy. J & S are with their father today as it's Sunday so they gave me their flowers yesterday.

This morning, Dh and I enjoyed a lovely stroll along Greve de Lecq beach with Grumpy followed by a tasty breakfast at Colleen's Cafe. We sat outside and enjoyed watching families with small children playing on the beach and one chap sat near us with his three small children enjoying ice-creams. To be honest it really wasn't warm enough - or is that just me - I think you would probably have to be under the age of 10 to enjoy eating ice creams in February. Inside I could relish one, but not outside, too cold for that. At least we had steaming drinks and hot plates of (hot) food.

Many thanks to Tom Foolery for my beautiful and much appreciated Busy Bee Award. I love receiving awards (I say this as if I'm always getting them) this is my second and very welcome. Funnily enough, the name Deborah means 'Bee' in Hebrew.

Now, I'm off to the shed and although my family always feel a little sad for me on Mother's day because I'm not with the children, I know that I'll have them back tonight and as far as I'm concerned a little peace and quiet to do exactly as I wish is surely the best present of all. So ta ta for now, the shed beckons.

Have a great day everyone.

Hi Debs, I know how you feel - I've been through that a fair few times but it does help the children to see a bit of give and take (hopefully!). I had to laugh at Flowerpot's blog about her friend'ex housesitting when she and new hub are away - wouldn't happen round here!!

Lovely flowers Debs, and from Grumpy too!.
Hope you've achieved loads in your shed today:-)

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

yvonne - thank you.

chrish - I know what you mean. I cannot begin to imagine giving my ex the keys to my house, let alone go away and give him freedom to mooch through everything.

lane - thanks. I managed 23 pages and can't believe it's taking so long.

helenmh - I agree, makes me feel chilly just thinking about it!

Ma - Isn't my award lovely! Glad you liked the voucher and card, it must be strange being the only one celebrating Mother's Day over there. Looking forward to seeing you. Don't you work too hard either and enjoy your lovely weather. Dxxx
