No sleep in for this Mum. Once I’m awake that’s pretty much it and I’m currently on 5.30am wake-ups. Doesn’t worry me though as I use that pre-sunrise time to watch youtube videos or catch up on blogs and have cuddles with my furbabies.

Later the girls prepared a lovely breakfast of French Toast, and a beautifully set table….

Then there were lots of lovely pressies… some of which I had picked out myself… some made or selected by the girls….

Just before 11am we headed to Bulli hospital to visit my Granny who has been moved to rehab. Good news indeed.

After we drove up to Robertson to Fountaindale Manor House. Mum & Dad took their own car.

We were last here in 2005 for a Wedding….

It’s a gorgeous old house and we were appreciative of the blazing fire when we arrived as it was rather cold outside.

We were a bit early for our high-tea so after a quick photo by the fire we were escorted to a lounge area to wait. Unfortunately this was away from the warm fire.

At 1.30pm we were finally seated (in another cold room). Unfortunately the service was pretty shocking (this is the first year they opened up both dining rooms). Food was scarce to start with (with everyone now starving since it was past 2pm). However, the food was delicious.

It was a shame the poor service put a bit of a dampener on what should have been a wonderful experience. Will we come back? Not too sure.

We had a quick stop at the Cheese factory and the famous Robertson Pie Shop before heading back down the mountain.

Christy had gotten car sick on the way up due to the very windy road so I let her sit in the front for the trip back home.

Overall it was a lovely Mothers Day. Great to be with my family and have another wonderful family day out. Hope you all had a good one.
