Aunty Caturday

Just when the blossoms are appearing on the trees outside and we have heard that spring lambs have been arriving too, we get a reminder that Winter is not done with us yet.  It was a chilly old day, and a cold night here, so we are all hunkered down with the heaters on.

One of mums besties had invited the mumster to come with her to another friends house.  This friend was hosting an Aunties day, for all the ladies she knew who don't have kids of their own, but are great anunties to their nieces and nephews.  There was Champagne, and there were fancy tea cups with lots of lovely tea and lots of nibbles, some chirizo and basil pastries, Salmon filo pies, egg sandwiches, chicken and almond sandwiches, cheese and crackers, chocolates, lemon tarts, mini cupcakes and chocolate mousse.  The best thing was that they were all served super small, so you could try everything to get a little taste.

They had a roaring fire and a very friendly pussy cat who came and cuddled with everyone, how brave!!  They also have an old girl who was curled up in the bathroom, as it has a heated floor, and her little bed was tucked in beside the bath - sweet.

Anyway it was a lovely afternoon tea, and all the girls had a good old chitchat together, even though they did not know each other prior.   Mum then went off and got some groceries so that I could have a feast for my dinner, and she had some chicken and salad.

So seems it will be warmer to be in bed, so mum has got her book ready and will be under the covers by 9pm tonight.  Go mum!!!

Have a lovely Caturday my friends - hope you get to do something fun.


  1. What a great idea, to have an Aunties Day! Especially when it comes with such yummy food.

    Every time you mention spring's arrival it reminds us that our warmer weather slowly is winding down and all too soon we'll be hunkered down against the minus 30C winds. Ugh.

    Enjoy your Sunday!
