pasta necklaces, cheese and being a mum

hiding- sooo hard to find (not)
Edie had been excited for Mother's Day for a week or so. Every night at bedtime she asked me if it would be Mothers' Day in the morning, she was just itching to give me her card and gift. I'm not sure what she was expecting but as it involved her giving me stuff she'd made and a lot of cake eating she was pretty happy.

love this card! love this girl.
Obviously I loved my card and my pasta tube necklace which I was instructed to 'wear all the time'. We compromised on 'for special occasions' but right now I'm happy to wear it all day every day. Until it rains at least and I have to whip it off in fear of being left with a purple and yellow chest and four soggy pieces of pasta hanging on a string around my neck. 

For lunch we went out for a cheese buffet at Madame Fromage in Cardiff. Heaven. It's made me think of having a mini cheese celebration myself at home sometime after I give birth, and then I can really go to town and not have to avoid some of the gooey, runny or blue types that I had to refuse because of the probably minuscule threat of listeria whilst pregnant. And then I can get jolly on a glass or two of wine! I'm so doing it. Cheese just really does it for me these days. 

After the cheese fest we went to my Mum's for a mountain of cake. How can you beat that? You can't. 

So thank you Edie for making me a mum and giving me the excuse to gorge myself on cheese and cake all day. 

Hope you had a fun weekend too and that it involved spending time with someone you love as much as I love Edie. And cheese.


  1. Cheese, cake and a pasta necklace? You lucky thing, sounds like a fab day!

  2. Glad you had a lovely day ... mine was lovely too ... breakfast in bed, little handmade gifts and cards and some lovely food ... suited me just fine :) ... Bee xx

  3. After this last pregnancy I was desperate for cheese and sushi! May I suggest a nice Shropshire Blue in the fridge when the time is right! I love the card and necklace, what a talented mini.
    P.S, you are blonde, not how I pictured you at all! ;)
