Over the past eight weeks we have received so many meals from mums. Our mums, our friends who are mums and the amazing mums who belong to our Playcentre. Pies, lasagnas, roast chickens, fresh loaves of bread, curries, cakes, brownies. Simple, wholesome, everyday food that each of them has taken time out of their busy schedules to cook and deliver to our door. Too many of them were eaten standing while trying to bounce a non-sleeping baby. Or eaten late at night after he finally did go to sleep.
I am so deeply grateful for these gifts. It has been wonderful at the end of a long, tiring day not to worry about getting a meal together, and know that something savory and good for my family to eat will be on the table. Thank you all so, so much.
