My MIL (who has been with us on every Mothers' Day since I married hubby) passed away last summer and my mum is currently in New Zealand on a mammoth holiday, so there's only ME! In essence, this year is my first proper Mothers' Day.
Hubby has promised me bacon butties for breakfast before he takes daughter swimming and asked what I would like him and daughter to make for lunch (to be honest, I think up seven meals a week, so it would be nice not to have to think up a meal, but to make sure I get something I like, I have obliged). I'm having chorizo and butterbeans in red wine followed by chocolate fondants (hubby's specialities) with Ben and Jerry's Baked Alaska ice cream (on offer this week).
I'm hoping for a relaxing day doing just what I want (only slightly punctuated with supervising piano practice and ironing daughter's school skirt - hubby can't stand the pleats!) and without being mithered, whinged at, or interrupted.
Are my expectations too high?
