Mother's Day 2012

Today is Mothering Sunday. We are lucky that the weather changed in the afternoon and we were able to celebrate.

It started with a lovely bouquet of flowers & lots of hugs from my mag-Ama. Then after hearing mass we travelled 63 miles (1 hour & 35minutes) to Brighton. 

Brighton is one of the popular places in the South. I've only been there twice and have only seen very little of it. We usually stay at the beach whenever we visit. I guess it reminds us of the Philippines. Just the smell of the sea made me really homesick.

I'll share some of my Brighton pics on my next post. =)

It was a pretty relaxed day. Nothing was planned & there was no schedule to follow. All I know is that we're going to the beach. 
At eto na, the boys had fun playing by throwing pebbles & running around the beach. I don't think they even noticed how cold it was. I had to literally drag them away!

We then went for a walk to find this cake shop, the Choccywoccydoodah. They are well known here in the UK for their bespoke Belgian chocolate cakes. I always watch their show on Sky tv. 

They also have a coffee shop where they sell hot chocolates, milkshakes, coffee and cakes. I had a chocolate cake and believe me, it felt like tasting a piece of chocolate heaven. 

And Papa E saw how happy I was with their cake that he even ordered another slice (this time its lemon cake, drizzled with chocolate, of course) for me to take home.  I'll also write a separate blog post  about the shop.

When we got home, we had a lovely dinner prepared, it was baked Salmon with ginger, coriander & garlic served with steamed veggies and mash potatoes.

It was a special day made perfect by my two loving boys. Thank you so much for showering me with so much love, Papa E & Poj. I love you too very much.

Happy Mother's day to all the moms, mommies, mothers, mga nanay, inay at ina out there, cheers! 

They also gave me a Mother's Day pressie, here .
