Happy Mothers Day

It is Mothers Day today.

We went up to the Blackheath growers market to get some fresh fruit and vegies. I got some vegie seedlings - leeks, kale, lettuce and some herbs. I can never get there early enough for the duck sausages!

I bumped into a friend and her son. The kids were playing in the autumn leaves. We made a leaf mountain and buried each other. Even little Loopity Lou had a go (and a nibble on some of the leaves!).

Me being a big kid making a leaf angel!

Afterwards, we went to the Common Ground Cafe at Katoomba. I love the way it was decked out with wood, stone and rusted metal. The table tops are solid wood. The cafe has a beautiful fireplace giving it an olde world feel about it. The staff were friendly and a lot of love and attention to detail has gone into the building of the cafe - even on the floor there was beautifully hand painted flowers on the step.

A mural on one of the walls off the main street in Katomba shows the animal and bird life of the Blue Mountians.

Happy Mothers Day to you all!
