The moral of this story is don't cook a slow cooker meal when you are at home. It smells too yummy and makes me feel hungry! But I will wait till tea time. Beef and herb dumplings.
I had a lovely Mother's Day. Breakfast with DH, dear daughter, dear son-in-law and dear littles. Dear daughter knitted me some fantastic socks. They are SO warm and will even fit under my boots.
In the afternoon I visited dear son who is recovering slowly. He loved the pumpkin soup and I have since made him some lightly curried creamy vegetable soup and stewed some apples for him. He is so sick of sloppy food but can't chew anything yet. His jeans were nearly falling off him today. He has been on a health kick the last few months and had lost 8 kilos but has lost another 5 kilos in 5 days. He has been keeping up the fluids though and the vegies should mean he isn't missing out on too many vitamins.
Thankyou for all your good wishes for him. He is getting grumpy, so he must be getting better!
One week until my Birthday! 50505050505050505050505050505050!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
