Well it isn't Mother's Day in the UK (we had ours in March) but I don't see any reason why I can't celebrate again?!!
So here's some photos and facts about my mum!
We all joke MI5 would have trouble cracking the code in mum's text messages!
Friends will pop round and ask "where you going tonight, you look nice" and mum is going nowhere she just likes to dress up to have dinner with my dad
She runs all my errands whilst I'm at work... dry cleaning... post office runs
My dinner is ready every night I get home from work and she does all my washing and ironing... declicately handwashing anything that needs it!
Every evening she brings me up a cup of tea and a biscuit
She hates to hear of anyone going without and has loaded friends and family with goodies from the cupboards... only yesterday I mentioned having to pick up some perfume for a friend from a cheaper brand because they were short of cash this month and she produced some small tester bottles from her draws to give her instead
Mum loves entertaining and tends to host a number of family events at our home.... she's always found some extra something to put on the table - she was my first teacher before Martha!
If mum reads something in the paper she'll pull the pages out and put them on my bed to read and we take it turns with passing on books and magazines we've read that we know the other will too
Mum is a die hard shopper.... she'll announce she's cutting back one week and the next is strolling home from Fortnum & Mason armed with shopping bags...
In New York last year I took mum to a Super Target for her first visit. We had 1 hour before our taxi came to collect us.... We seperated for ease... when i tried to track mum down 40 mins later she was still in the same place I'd left her!
My mum is crazy... fun....caring and I wouldn't be without her and most of all I LOVE her!
I hope you enjoyed hearing about mum today and wishing you all a lovely Mother's Day and for more bloggers posting about their mum's visit here
