Following last night's concert and late arrival home (I think we walked in the door just as 2.00am struck), I tried to let Helen have a sleep in, which meant me getting up when the kids did around 6.45am to keep their excitement levels down and allow their mother to sleep. This theory all came crashing down at 8.10am, when Helen's mother called, and with one of our phone right next to her head in the bedroom, that was the end of that sleep in.
Helen was showered with gifts and cards and drawings from her three crazy kids (a motherlode of presents, if you will...), in fact more presents than probably any mother has ever received on one Mother's Day. She then received breakfast on The Deck with her children. Such a spoiled mother she is.
At 11.30am it was off to Helen's parents' home in Flinders to celebrate Mother's Day #2, where we had a quiet lunch out on the lawn followed by dessert of many natures.
