My family celebrated Mother's Day a little earlier than everyone else in the UK. 24 hours earlier, so here I am to tell the tale...
So as to spend the day with my sister too, we drove to Cambridge.
We arrived a little early for lunch, so I had some time to set out my sketchbook in my sister's room & get to work (with the company of music & a cheeky slice of Angel cake of course!).
I then set out to meet the rest of my family for lunch, passing plenty of gorgeous food stalls & flower merchants on the way.
After reuniting, we made our way to my mother's favourite lunch spot - a bustling cafe nestled inside St Michael's church.
We arrived and were quickly whisked off our feet by all the delicious scents & smells. Everything is flexible there, you can pick what to eat & match it with your favourite salads or scones as you like.
There is usually a queue, but it goes quickly & is probably an advantage as otherwise you'll be panicking which dish to pick - they're all delicious I assure you.
Whilst you wait, its the perfect opportunity to admire the beautiful architecture, even the lights are pretty & there is a great selection of artwork on the walls.
I chose the pizza of the day & added a selection of salads. The rest of my family all chose the same dish - spinach, pumpkin & feta cheese quiche. Being the greedy person I am, I had to taste their dish too & I can safely say they were both incredible.
My pizza had a really good mix of flavours & the salads I chose were very tasty. The quiche was also very good, I hadn't actually ever had pumpkin in a quiche before, but it is definitely something I need to start doing!
Before leaving, we went into the church area of the building & admired the architecture.
After a little roam around the city, we headed off feeling toasty & happy despite the cold weather.

Happy Mother's Day to my very own mother!
