Wow! Breakfast in bed!

“Mummy, it’s morning time!” It was slightly before 6 am, and as I heard Georgia’s footsteps shuffling along the short corridor joining our rooms, I braced for her to climb over me, or in between us, and as I waited, I heard her creep over to her dad’s side and with a rather loud whisper, “Dad, it’s morning time!”

How odd, I wondered, perhaps they had such a good time yesterday they were continuing their ‘bonding’. I wasn’t going to complain about an extra 10 minutes in bed!

“Ok!” Dad said, getting out of bed immediately. Curiouser and curiouser…

About 5 minutes later, Georgia appears with a sweet little plant. “Happy Mothers Day” with a kiss and a hug “Do you love it?” she asks pointing to the present. “Yes of course”

“Then you must keep it here, right next to you on your table” clearing a space from all the books.

“And you must stay in bed, we are bringing you breakfast…”

She disappears only to return two minutes, precariously balancing a plate-full of chipolatas, fried eggs, baked beans – a cooked breakfast. “Daddy will bring your tea up”

Wow! What a treat and a lovely start to the day!

Thank you Georgia and Daddy and a Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful Mummys (and Mummys -to-be) out there, including my own, who had to cook a wonderful lunch AND dinner on Mother’s Day.

Thank you Mum and Happy Mother’s Day!

  • Wow, that’s very sweet!

  • Jamie yes it was:)

  • How lovely! And well deserved, I’m sure. It reminds me of when we used to cook breakfast with my father for my mother on Mother’s Day. I’m pretty sure that’s the only time I’ve ever seen him cook!

    • LOL! The Breakfast in bed experience, was certainly a lot more meaningful than any shop-bought present.
