The day before Mothers’ Day my son’s Auskick had their special Mothers’ Day match. We were short on numbers and I was called in to help with a few other mums and a couple of the dads. The game was a lot of fun, but very scary. Its so hard to try to kick the ball with 10 or more little people hanging off every part of you! Still we had some laughs and enjoyed the game. It was rigged as usual for us mums to win.
The next day (Mothers’ Day) I was still feeling pretty stiff and sore, but had to get up early to watch my son in his under 10’s match. No time for breakfast in bed or presents, we just got up rushed around getting ready and headed off to the oval. I love watching him play and hoping that I never miss him getting his first goal (still to happen) and I see him growing and learning more.
We came home for a cup of tea and I was spoilt with their gifts from the Mothers’ Day stall at school and presents hubby had organised. Two of my favourites were the lanyard my daughter gave me that is such a lovely bright shade of pink I can find my car keys easily in my bag and the envelope of coupons my son made for me (such as free massage, sweeping the floor, etc).
We went out to lunch but not at the place that had put their prices up for the day to $50.00 for anyone over the age of 5! I can’t stand rip offs! We instead went to a hotel not too far away and I had a truly enjoyable meal. Then we visited my mother-in-law in the nursing home and came home for a quiet night.
All in all I’d say it was a wonderfully happy day spent with those I love and who could ask for more?
