Early Birthday and Mothers' Day Celebrations...

I will be away for both of these occasions so on Saturday, DD1 and DD2 took me out to lunch to celebrate just that bit earlier.

They chose the Crepe Cafe at Aspley. 
I discourage my girls from giving me presents for both my birthday and Mother's Day as it was getting out of hand with 2 lots of gifts so close together...some years both celebrations are on the one day! I just love being taken out...that's enough! I did get a lovely scarf which had been knitted by DD1's housemate which was in my colours! DD2 and Jimmy (the dog) gave me some framed photos of Jimmy and I, plus an apron and shawl from her recent trip to Thailand...oh and a domestic goddess keyring :-) lol

After the gifts were opened, our drinks arrived...I highly recommend their coffee!

Here comes our food...pesto crepe for DD1 and an omlette for DD2...

 And this is my crepe...Farmhouse Crepe, with chicken and mushrooms in bechamel sauce...it was yummy!

Miss DD2 ordered toast with her meal as it was her breakfast as well as lunch,lol!

I am hopeless at holding up a mobile phone and taking a photo of myself...luckily all the girls can manage it and DD2 took this one of us before we headed for home.
With my lovely girls...

A lovely idea to go out instead of buying presents. Sounds like a fun time.

HI Maria, happy birthday, are you also an Aries? Lovly idea to spend time together instead of gifts as time is the most precious gift. My husband and I never give gifts to each other as we always say each day together is our gift :

Lovely to go out with the girls for celebrations. We often do that as well, and I discourage my family giving me gifts for Mothers Day. My birthday and Mothers Day are also close, up to 2 weeks apart. I know they think of me, and a phone call is good.
