A lovely weekend

This weekend we headed to Boxted, Essex to visit the Handmaid and Vintage fair. A lovely little fair with some great things for sale. I bought a lovely bookmark, and some notecards off of this lovely lady.

We bought some yummy cakes and the 2 little boys got me some flowers:

Not far from Boxted is the lovely town of Dedham. We try to visit at least once a year:

As it was a lovely sunny day, we took a rowing boat along the river

Mothers Day

My lovely hubbie made a cooked breakfast for my mum and I.

I got some lovely gifts - My eldest son bought me a cupcake sign from school and painted a butterfly to put in a plant pot. The littlest made a cupcake at preschool, a mum keyring and some great cards. I also recieved some other lovely gifts - i'm a very lucky Mummy.

We went to church, where all the ladies were given some daffs and then headed to Ocean Beach for a lovely 3 course dinner with my in laws.

I hope you had a lovely weekend
