How was everyone's weekend? I hope those of you who have kids had a nice, quiet Mother's Day. My Mum just asks for us to not irritate her for one day. We try, but it's a big ask.
My MIL's birthday was on Saturday so we went to dinner and gave her a few fun gifts, including a new point-and-shoot camera since she's been saying for ages she wants to get one. We gave her a lesson in using it but it's easy enough to use so I'm not worried.
She asked for red velvet cupcakes so I baked a batch. It's one of my favourite cupcakes to bake and eat, so I was happy to oblige. I'm terrible at icing things, so I just kind of slap it on and smooth it out, and hope no one notices.
My little sister ordered flowers for our Mum and it wasn't quite as large as we'd have liked. Basically, we just want her to stumble under the weight of it. Also, I'm baffled by those green things on the bottom. I'm told it's hollow and feels very papery. Where the hell do people find weird things like that???
My middle sister took her out to lunch since she's the only one of us in Singapore, and I gave her strict orders to hug Mum. Singapore is hot and humid, so unnecessary human contact is not something Mum enjoys. Clearly I abandoned the no-irritation rule fairly quickly :)
And for Mother's Day here, we went over to my in-laws for a cookout. Those two little pups are Zoey and Daisy.
My husband's aunt and uncle joined us, and I was so thrilled to see his aunt because she's been undergoing cancer treatments and kicking cancer's ass. She's doing so well and I'm just relieved she'll be with us for many years to come :)
With that, I leave you with pictures of my in-law's neighbour's alpacas. They just got shaved and look absolutely ridiculous. And they seem to know it. And I'm completely in love with the littlest one (scroll to the very last picture) with its giant eyes and skinny everything.
