Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for my Mum.

Mum and Dad
(at the Munchkins Mad Hatter party - she doesn't usually wear a silly hat!)

We had planned to meet up somewhere between our homes today.  She looks after my niece on Thursdays and I have both of my boys so we like to do something together every couple of weeks.

Anyway, this morning I rang her and said I was too headachey to drive, but she was welcome to come here and we'd take the kids to the park, have lunch and they could head back ahead of school 40 zone time.

She did.  Even though it meant her driving across Sydney.

It was great.  The boys were entertained.  I had help with the boys at the park and getting my floors washed  Also her being here meant I remembered to eat some lunch.

On top of all this greatness, she also arrived bearing gifts.

A box of cookies she had made this morning for the kids.

A big Aldi bag full of assorted clothing she had bought for the boys, full of stuff they just love and I would never buy.

And my personal favourite, two brand spanking new 1000 count cotton sheet sets for moi!  Just because she knows how much I love them.

What a Mum!

I'm so thankful to have my Mum around to help out.

What are you thankful for this Thursday?

Linking up with Kate from KateSaysStuff…for Thankful Thursday.


  1. Mum's can be great like that. Wish mine would buy 1000 TC sheets though!

  2. Your Mum sounds just as wonderful as mine :) It's amazing how much you appreciate them when you have kids of your own!

  3. You have a wonderful Mum, it is plain to see. I miss mine, who has been gone 7 years now. I am a new follower for Thankful Thursday. Pls follow back. Growing Old With Grace

  4. Beautiful post Sam :)

    My Mum is amazing too. She's always there when I need her and my appreciation for her has changed and grown since having children myself. Love her so much.

  5. Your mum is a hero. Mine came over last week bearing gifts too which was lovely. Gotta love pressies!

  6. What a lovely mum. Mine used to buy us 1000 count cotton sheets for Christmas but my brother and sister said they wanted other things instead. Silly fools now I miss out!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read them all and try very hard to reply.
