Delicious chocolates from my son for Mothers Day. My husband took me out to dinner on Saturday night followed by a movie-The Back-up Plan ( romantic comedy) the guys cooked lunch on Sunday, washed the dishes, offered me tea all day and bought an apple tart for afternoon tea. I had a lovely relaxing day.
