Mother's Day 2016

This mother's day was slightly different for me as we were in Australia and it was my first as a mum of 2. The day came as perfect timing because hubby had arrived back in Australia the day before and we hadn't seen him for 7 weeks. 

It was so wonderful to be back together as a family. I'm not going to lie, it's been very difficult without him but i've got to give myself some credit. Reflecting back, I think I did a great job looking after the 2 of them by myself.

We stayed in a hotel in Sydney on the Saturday before mother's day so it was lovely to wake up in a huge comfy bed and know I was in for a special day. I had beautiful flowers delivered to the room and Eva then presented me with my cards and present. She was so excited although she kept singing happy birthday, which made me laugh!


Hubby had bought me such a thoughtful gift. It was a set of bracelets from Lily Belle. There was one for me, one for Eva and one for Ophelia. They are exactly the same and all have our names on, (well mine says mummy). They are ridiculously cute. Eva was ecstatic to have the same bracelet as mummy and her sister. I've had a sneaky peek at their website and there are so many adorable things on there that I want for me and the girls'. 


We then went out and had a very tasty breakfast and I had a glass of champagne as a little treat.


Next was the main event. We were lucky enough to have been able to review Taronga Zoo, so we chose to do it on mother's day as we knew it would be a fun day out for all of us. We really did have an amazing time there. It's the best zoo we've ever been too with the most breathtaking views as the icing on the cake. There was so much to see. By the time we got back in the car at the end of the day, both girls were snoring. Look out for a full review of the zoo on my blog very soon.


I just love the following pictures that we got on the day. It sums up what being a mum is all about. Making these 2 beauties happy. 



I couldn't have asked for a better day. I was spoilt rotten by hubby and my daughters. The best gift of all was having us all back together and seeing how happy this made Eva and Ophelia. I'm not sure we'll be able to top it next year.

What did you get up to for mother's day?

  8. How wonderful having you all back together for Mother's Day. Super little bracelets and I bet the weather was super. I was in the US for Mother's Day this year and my son was in the UK in uni. I got spoilt beforehand though.
