I have been using Instagram separately from my personal Facebook for the past six months, in an attempt to separate business and personal life but I have recently realised that most of my friends have missed on our news in this way.
So, inspired by a fellow blogger who has an Instagram post once a week, I will attempt to keep my friends and family updated in this visually pleasing way as well.
This week has been all about the coming celebrations for Mother’s Day as we got loads of bits to enjoy on the occasion, all thanks to this blog.
We kicked off the celebrations (I know, I am the mummy here but I cannot leave those two out, can I?) with lovely, scrummy food from Charlie Bigham’s, for which we had been sent vouchers the week before.
Charlie Bigham is the amazing chef who came up with the brilliant idea of “oven-prepared convenience dishes”, designed for one or two and selling at a very reasonable price, in an attempt to bring harmony back into the home. My two were definitely saved a lot of cooking and the washing up also with the amazing lasagna and individual pies we chose from the range.
We would definitely recommend them, a thousand time tastier and healthier than a takeaway and for a fraction of the price! The good thing is that it is not too late to grab some from your local supermarket (aim for the bigger stores, our Sainsbury’s doesn’t stock them so we had to drive to Lisburn!) and wow mum or wife with them!
Then, on Tuesday, an unexpected and absolutely beautiful parcel from the Cooperative Food brightened my day with amazing looking cake and a bit of fizz :-):
The Cooperative has plenty of afternoon tea and gift ideas for organising the Mother of all Tea Parties this Mothering Sunday so why don’t you pop over if you are still in need of inspiration for the big day. There are even free music playlists via Spotify, to recreate that perfect atmosphere for mum!
But of course, the best present Alex and Emma can always give me is the gift of time spent together. We had plenty of that last Saturday on the North Coast, taking pictures for World Book Day on the famous stones at Giant’s Causeway and enjoying amazing fish and chips suppers.
There is nothing I want more this Mother’s Day than having them close and making loads of happy memories together. Of course, a little baby boy in Heaven will also be in our thoughts and hearts on the day, as he always is!
Whatever you do this Mother’s Day, hope you have a happy, full of love day. And cake,loads of cake :-)!
