Happy Mother’s Day

So it’s Mother’s Day today and after the obligatory lunch with the husband’s family, I spent some time with my mum. She’s truly one of the most amazing human beings I know and I appreciate her so much.

After hanging out with my mum, I dragged my sister down to Thai Festival at the Embassy. We stuffed ourselves with khanom bueang (those delightful little crispy pancakes), boat noodles, mango sticky rice, milk tea and Chang beer. When I got home, I managed to rollerblade for a bit so it was a pretty decent Mother’s Day for me with a fair amount of me-time.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there. Hope it was a good one for you.

Mother’s Day at Wheeler’s Yard

A few days ago, Facebook reminded me a post I’d written 2 Mother’s Days ago about how I felt unappreciated and also wanted to make it clear that my life as a mother is hardly Instagram-worthy. After being a mother for so many years, I think I’ve come to terms with what I can expect for Mother’s Day.

This year’s Mother’s Day was pretty good, actually. Adrian insisted on having my favourite HaiDiLao Hotpot for an early Mother’s Day dinner even though he hates steamboat. The kids all made nice cards, and we even managed some rather decent photos at the very photogenic Wheeler’s Yard on Mother’s Day. So all in all, I had a lovely time and I’m so thankful for my family.
