Happy Mother’s Day to you all for next week 🙂
This post is arriving a week early as I have a few jam packed weeks coming up so I thought I’d share some of the events we’ll be up to on Mother’s Day weekend and I’d love to hear what you’ll be up to!
Mother’s Day is doubly special for me because it’s been almost 1 YEAR since my very first blog post!
I wanted to commit to posting weekly without fail and I’ve managed to do that. Hope you’ve enjoyed these posts that I’m sharing as much as I have presenting it to you 🙂
I also have a special part of my blog where I time stamped my very first blog entry which you can find in the top right corner 🙂
Well, what has happened in a year? Plenty!
- I had a new team member join our family – little Kyneton
- Emelina has started up Montessori school and is slowly detaching from Mum and Dad 🙂
- I’ve grown a year wiser with how I manage my time and spend it with loved ones
- Emelina has started regular sport/training which I’ll share later 🙂
- Plenty of celebrations, parties and events AND MORE!
So Mother’s Day is Sun 13 May and gosh the year has flown by so quickly already.
Just feels like we packed up the Christmas decorations just last week 🙂
This is what we have planned for the weekend
Early in the morning we’ve signed up to the Mother’s Day Classic which is a Fun Run/Walk raising money and awareness for Breast Cancer research.
It’s based around my beautiful city of Melbourne in the Alexandria gardens and we’ll be dressed up in our best pink clothes and walking shoes!
I wrote earlier that we moved over an hour away from the main CBD of Melbourne almost 1.5 years ago and we’ve loved the country change.
There are times though that I’ve missed being in the City and having that cosmopolitan feeling! It’ll be great to return back and make some new memories with my little family.
When the morning is all finished up I’ll be having lunch with my Mother-in-Law in the city.
We’ll take her out to a little Japanese place that’s kid friendly. Always good to see Family and spending quality time!
We’ll also plan to see Leki’s Grandmother who is now in a nursing facility and celebrate her strong spirit!
We are lucky to have great grandparents with us still and we only have one set of them on both sides of our Families – Leki’s maternal grandmother and my maternal grandmother.
After we finish up having lunch we’ll head up to the Northern suburbs and have an early dinner for my Mother and my Grandmother.
We are celebrating Kyneton’s Baptism this weekend and we are blessed to have my Grandmother from Tonga visiting! So we get to spend time with her, celebrate Ky’s Baptism this weekend and Mother’s Day next week!
Phew! Mother’s Day will be a busy day for us.
Fortunately we’ll be staying in the city overnight so we can get over to the Fun Walk nice and early then Lunch in the city before finishing off in the Northern suburbs then hike back out to the country late Sunday night.
Wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂
Have a great Mother’s Day – however you choose to spend it!
