My #FavouriteThing today was having my whole family here for dinner. It was the twins’ 12th birthday in Friday, and we decided to do the family party tonight. It also happened to be Mother’s Day. So my parents, the kids’ dad and his parents, and family friends of ours (who are family as far as we’re concerned) all came over here. I made tacos (shrimp, beef, or chicken choices)…the proper Mexican pan-fried version that I learned from Saffron’s husband. Salad and cake and fruit salad and ice cream and…oh my!! It was a lovely night.

And I got not one, but two bouquets of flowers for Mother’s Day from my dad and my ex-mother-in-law. I absolutely adore having fresh cut flowers at home, so it was a lovely treat.
