Mother’s Day

So to complete my weekend, this Sunday was Mothering Sunday in the UK.  As our son was up in Sheffield at university, my daughter was in total control of the celebrations!  A few years ago she cooked me the most amazing lemon curd and mascarpone gateau and it has become a tradition for her to cook it for me every year now!  I didn’t get chance to photograph it before it was sliced up but she had taken a photo on her phone so excuse the quality but I can assure you it was delicious:

She had bought me some lovely, thoughtful gifts and put them in such pretty gift bags:
