the cutest thing ever!

DSC_0282 This is what my clever children gave me for Mother’s day. It’s a book seat which, as you can see, holds my book for me so I can tuck my arms in under the covers. So I remain toasty warm as the evenings cool down.

And I got the Long Way Around to go in it too. I know my love of books is hidden under a very thin veneer (well not really) bit I still  love it that my kids listen to me and know me well enough to organise this themselves – there was no hinting about this at all.

Clever.

I also got a heap of other stuff, they framed my (disappointingly ordinary) testamur, a yoga mat (pink) and they were all home which I love. they cooked me a yummy dinner (garlic lobster!) and generally spoilt me rotten.

Cool huh.

That's so cool! I knew you must have been an Aussie Book Bloggers as soon as I read, 'starting to cool down'. Glad you had a nice mother's day!
