Busy morning

Tomorrow is Mother's Day in the UK and I've invited the family round for tea and cake in the afternoon. This morning, after dropping Claire off at work, I headed into Sainsbury's to get what I needed and then came home and spent the rest of the morning baking. Thank goodness for modern appliances which make some of the process so much quicker :) One of Jon's friends was going up to Twickenham to watch the rugby this afternoon and asked if we would babysit their 6 month old Jack Russell called Oscar. He's been quite good but has reminded me very clearly how much work a puppy can be! I certainly wouldn't be in a hurry to get another puppy and am grateful that our dogs are basically well behaved and not as demanding.
And just for a bit of colour on the blog, I went to the garden centre with Mum and Dad on Friday and they had some really colourful displays. These flowers are a prime example.
Hope you are all having a good weekend, I am about to go outside and make the most of what's left of the sunshine. Someone told me we may be back to snow by Wednesday, I'm really hoping they were wrong!
