We were in the middle of Legoland last Friday when my kids started pulling at a plant in one of the planter boxes and presented some flowers to me with much fanfare.

Peanut said, Mummy, I give you these flowers because I want you to be happy!

Lion said, Mummy, I love you!

My mother said, See! They keep plucking these flowers home on their way back from school every day for you but by the time you get home, they are all wilted so I just throw them away!

The food provided by the Desaru Fruit Farm was fantastic and the kids had lots of fun visiting the ostriches, the crocodiles, the fireflies and just hanging out at the resort with their grandparents.

But then I came home and my work collapsed around my ears. I still haven’t dug myself out from underneath it all yet [hence explaining the absence].

Oh well.
