Happy mothers day

If you're celebrating mother's day - like we are - then I hope you have (had) a lovely relaxed day. I had a very nice day. A sleep-in - even though it wasn't technically my turn (J usually sleeps in Sundays and I get Mondays). Then we went to lunch with family - including Chickie's grandparents, great-grandparent, great-uncles, great-aunts and (2nd & 3rd) cousins. Afterwards we went to one of the cousins' home and all the kids had a great time playing together.

Then tonight I've been enjoying the Eurovision Song Contest. I love it! The stage costumes, in particular, amuse me. Though I will admit that they were pretty laid back and 'normal' this year. If it wasn't for the Ukraine (the lead singer was wearing a silver star on his head, like some sort of shiny silver christmas tree), Moldova (someone pull up the pants on that girl!) and Slovenia (goth-y opera type with a sort of flower light thing on her palm - actually it would make a handy booklight), I'd have been a bit disappointed. Congrats to the winners Serbia. Not a bad song.

Though, I have no idea how Switzerland didn't make it past the finals (last night) - how can you go past a song that lets us know that vampires are alive?

You know I had to go and look at that gilr's pants don't you?

My compliments to her beutician - obviously a dab hand with a jar of hot wax.

Eurovision was fab! I have to say I liked Sweden's glam rock band best though.

The eastern bloc alliance has ruined the show.

r2k - I think I'll need to practice first with a Where's Wally book - I couldn't find it :)

tracey - totally agree there (and don't worry about the spelling mistakes, though I hate it when I do that in comments too!)

h - You know I didn't really have a favourite this year. There were a couple I quite liked but no big standouts for me.

jean-luc - personally I wish people would just stop voting for neighbours and start voting for the ones they liked.

oh great one - thanks :) I hope you had a lovely one too.

I must admit, I don't get the whole Eurovision thing. It's so...trashy!! It's like the European version of It Takes Two...!

Your Mother's Day sounds perfect...especially the sleeping in bit!

Stomper Girl said...

Those pants were ... mind-boggling. What was holding them up? What?? How could she have moved at all without losing the lot..

Anyway.

Happy Mother's Day to you and I'll have you know I'm jealous of your bonus sleep-in.

Also thanks for cheering words over my way, much appreciated.

Every mother deserves a Great Mothers Day. Glad you had one too!

caramaena said...

Thanks for the mother's day wishes everyone :)

my float - the trashiness is what I love. The cheesiness of the songs, the flamboyance and ridiculousness of the costumes, and the funny commentary from Terry Wogan. It's all good to me!

stomper - I was mesmerized by those pants. I was sure if she moved just the wrong way, they'd be gone.
