Champagne for my Real Friends, Real Pain for my Sham Friends

Yesterday was family day.
To celebrate my Grandma’s birthday, my amazing mum put on a huge champagne breakfast.

Seriously, this woman went to TOWN.

She made two types of Kedgeree, scrambled eggs, baked mushrooms, pan-fried mushrooms, baked tomatoes, bacon and kidneys. Plus fresh fruit, orange juice, champagne, tea and coffee. She also went to put croissants in the oven at which point we surrendered to defeat, and beggedΒ her to stop feeding us.
The most impressive part of the spread though, was how she catered to everyone. She used lactose free milk in the eggs, and bought me gluten free bread. She cooked the kidneys especially for my brother because he used to love them when he was little. His girlfriend is vegetarian so Mum cooked a separate Kedgeree – sans fish. What a legend!

Visiting Mum’s house means getting to spend time with these funny characters too…

I snuck outside and enjoyed the sunshine with this guy; Mr Darcy…

And what a happy family! Give me more days like these please.

To the woman that taught me “a lady never tells her age” – Happy Birthday Grandma! We love you!
