Today we celebrated Mother’s Day . One of the main reasons for this is because restaurants place a hefty price tag on meals just because it’s Mother’s Day . Yes you may be able to take the mom along for free but then the other meals cost more than they normally would !
Why would I want to go to a restaurant and spend £20 more just because it’s Mother’s Day . I would rather go the day before and have the same meal and save some money !
Jordan did ask me what I wanted for Mother’s Day and to be honest I couldn’t really think of anything. I already have enough tat with mom on it to last a lifetime. Of course I love the bits I have but do I really need anymore. The answer is no so that’s why we did a family meal. This is something we love doing as a family and we went to a nicer restaurant to make it that little bit more special.
Also Mother’s Day isn’t just about me it’s about my mom and Jordan’s mom . So we like to make sure we go and see them to show them how much we appreciate them. After doing all the visiting there isn’t much of a day left for me . Now that may sound really selfish but it’s true I want a day for me . A day where I can have a lie in and a nap in the afternoon . With no time constraints I can do what I want when I want.
That’s exactly what we did today . After having a late night out last night at a wedding Ava treated me to a lie in .It was at least 9 o’clock before we got out of bed ! I cannot remember the last time we did this . Recently she has been up at 7 if not earlier and raring to go. I blame going back to work for this as I have to get her up 3 days a week to go to nursery so it’s become routine.
Then Jordan said the magic words shall we have a McDonald’s breakfast . To which I replied without hesitation YES! To make my Day even more awesome Jordan went and got the McDonald’s breakfast.
My day just got better and better from then I had a morning nap !! Whilst Jordan sorted Ava. We went out for a yummy family meal and had a nosey around a Garden centre . Now I know this may make me sound about 70 years old but I love a good garden centre. Especially when the sun is out.
