Happy Mothers' Day to all the mums ;) Though my mother died when I was in my forties she was only really my mother for the first 81/2 years of my life. I was fortunate in that my big sis took over the role when I was 15, not just for myself but also for my youngest sister and my brother. Can you imagine that; at 24 she not only had 2 of her own children but also 3 teenagers to look after! Amazing! I'm a very lucky mum now 'cos though I've only got 2 children I've actually got 5 cards for Mothers Day, yippee! I've got one each from the 2 sets of grandkids and also one for 'mother-in-law' from DDs' OH; I think that speaks volumes :) and the usuall choccies - far too many, but I couldn't possibly give them away now could I?! I'll just have to munch my way through them. I got a few other little gifts too.
Yesterday I did 180 miles round trip! I went to see DS and two lovely granddaughters, and after dropping them off I went to visit one of my nephews who is quite poorly in hospital and as my great-niece lives only a few minutes from the hospital I thought I'd pay a visit. She had a little boy 4 weeks ago so I got to hold the newest member of the family - my great-great-nephew. eek! makes me sound ancient LOL I didn't think to take a photo but pinched this off Facebook ;) My greatniece had ordered pizza and garlic bread before I arrived and asked if I'd like some. As I'd only had a plate of chips (at Playtown in Southport) and a Mars bar I said yes please. She handed me a plate with 2 slices of pizza then added as an afterthought, 'you're not vegetarian are you'? Just as well I'm not considering she'd just handed me some 'meat feast' pizza hehe. So not a healthy diet yesterday!
Hope you all have a lovely day ;) xx
