Mother's Day


Some days I need memories of summer as I sit huddled listening to the storm .
Last Saturday Nat asked me what I might like for a Mother's Day present so I suggested a bar of anti oxidant chocolate .
Today when I went to town to conduct a financial transaction of my own and found myself perusing the Smelling Goods in John Lewis , eventually purchasing something for my own deserving Mother whilst there ( and one for me , so impressed was I by the smells ) , I concluded that had she instead presented me with the Grumpy Cow Uplifting Candle this could have been a source of some amusement for us both .
I would have loved to buy one but alas ! grumpy is not a word that could be readily applied to my mother or indeed her mother before her .
I think both my sister and me though would be prepared to hold our hands up to that one . It can't be genetic then can it ? Must be the pressures of Modern Life then . Or some such ?
Answers on a postcard please .....

Hi Shelagh I follow my mum, she always had a smile on her face, would chat to anybody she knew, and even tho we had a hectic family (my 2 sisters were disabled barbara who sadly died 10 days before mum was severley disabled mum and dad looked after her until my dad died) mum would do anything for anybody, she was loved by all the neighbours, but whats more weird mark is a clone of my brother in there ways, how they dress and even what they eat! it was so funny to watch the pair of them at a family party, took the pastry out the porkpie, fat of the ham, and yolk out of the egg! both sit there clock watchin its so amusing! Happy mums day tommorow!
