What a lovely day!!

Today has been such a lovely day for me. My second Mother's day! I was woken up this morning, not by a cup of tea or breakfast in bed but by a very excited Mini Magpie opening my presents as she ran in to wake me. Yes, that's right, I wasn't allowed to open my gifts, she was opening all the pressies that she and her daddy had bought for me. Haha! Now that's sharing mummy apparently!

Mini Magpie had made me a card at nursery this week and planted some seeds for me to have beautiful flowers on Mother's Day. She also gave me a new set of bird measuring cups and a book called the Artful Bird which I have been anchoring after since my friend Denise introduced me to her copy not so long back. 

Mini Magpie and I spent a lovely afternoon checking out all the delightful and extraordinary birds that have been created and star in it. Definitely would recommend it to all you crafters out there.

So all in all, I have had the most fan-tabulous day! Hope you all have too.


  1. Hello! This is so cute! Back here in Portugal mother's day is only on the first sunday of may. Tomorrow will be father's day! I loved your cards!

    1. Oh and by the way, I made a post tagging you if you wish to play!

  2. Hi Sara,

    Lovely to hear from you again and thank you for your kind words. I hadn't realised that you didn't celebrate Mother's Day until May and that Father's Day for you in Portugal is today. Happy Father's Day to all the daddies out there in Portugal!! Our Father's day is in June. You would think we would all celebrate the days on the same day, wouldn't you! Love finding out new little facts, I'm a geek like that haha!

    Thank you for tagging me too, will definitely like to play.


Just wanted to say a 'BIG' thank you for taking the time out to leave your comments. Forgive me for not responding straight away but rest assure I WILL asap as I really appreciate your thoughts. Much love and thanks in advance Rubie Magpie xx
