It’s certainly been a Mother’s Day to remember that’s for sure, I was meant to be busy carrying out my usual Sunday stint behind the bar but following my recent injury I was left with my ‘thumb up’ rather than feet up whilst the kids were kept busy at their Grandparents following an overnight stay thanks to my scissor shenanigans.
I have however rather enjoyed my day, it’s definitely been different especially as I was able to spend time with my wider family rather than my Sunday punters. The kids seemed to enjoy having me at home despite the fact that I’ve spent the majority of my time glued to my Macbook, desperately trying to write a half-decent cover letter, which let me tell you is damned hard to write at the best of times, never mind whilst wearing dressings on your thumb!
My Sunday photos usually include panoramic views, outdoor scenes and such-like but to throw caution to the wind this week I opted to share something much closer to my heart, a message from my children which I received earlier today in the form of two rather splendid ‘Mothers Day’ cards.
As you will be well aware if you’ve read my past posts, my children are my World and without them today nor any other day simply wouldn’t be the same.
I have been spoilt rotten by both the children and of course the husband (who facilitated their spending). Firstly, I was given the obligatory ‘Terry’s Orange’ followed shortly by a brand, spanking, new Tripp cabin sized suitcase and finally my husband very kindly ordered me a pair of walking boots which I’ll be sure to wear when out on playground duty and quite possibly whilst walking with friends in future.
I’m more than aware how difficult Mother’s Day can be and is for some: for those that have lost their Mothers, those that no longer communicate with their Mothers, those that have lost children and for many other reasons. I therefore hope that you have had the best Mother’s Day possible ideally without any injuries and that you continue to have a fabulous week ahead.
