Mr 10 and Miss 3

Sorry for my absence here and lack of posts. My intentions were to enjoy some time offline with my best friend and her Miss 3. Which I did, we had a great time and went to the Zoo, Bounce, visited our old neighborhood and childhood homes and had lunch from the fish and chip shop we used to go to. Lately I've been feeling very drawn to the house I grew up in, despite not having a great upbringing. I feel such a strong connection to that place. My friend and I walked the path from her house to mine and were amazed it was such a short distance! We remember it to be further away!

 On Mother' Day my husband made a fabulous high tea at home of finger sandwiches, scones, biscuits and cake. My sweet kids gave me some homemade gifts. I then cooked a roast chicken for dinner. It was a great day.

But then last Thursday Mr 10 was rushed to hospital with severe pain and ended up needing emergency surgery. It was a long and sleepless night! I spent the night in hospital with him and the next day was my birthday.

It was quite scary and it all happened so fast but thank goodness for amazing hospital staff and free healthcare we have here. He has been so brave and is recovering very well.

Hubby baked an orange cake for my birthday- my favourite, and I cooked homemade popcorn chicken and vegetables.

I hope you are all well and have had a great week
