Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all Mums everywhere.  We have been away in the caravan this weekend but caught up with daughter Nicky last week for a nice lunch in Palmerston North.  She presented me a pot of lovely fragrant pink hyacinths, so beautiful.  What she doesn’t know is that I was thinking of buying myself some, but decided against it, so I am really pleased with her choice.

As we knew we would be away for the weekend, we took Robin’s Mum out for an early Mother’s Day lunch on Thursday. to the delightful Te Horo Cafe.  Her gift was a pot of pretty tulips.

My son Michael often says that he thinks Mother’s Day is a .load of commercial claptrap, but maybe he might remember to give his old Mum a phone call tonight.  And he finally did.  Sometimes I need to phone him instead to remind him it’s Mother’s Day!

Phone calls here, sunshine galore, cold tonight, so maybe a frost to celebrate, Happy Day to you too, hugs, Jean.

Happy Mother’s Day! We remembered to make our calls to New Zealand on “your” Sunday. Yay! :-)

In the meantime I get to be a full time mother again for a few days. My son came off his motorcycle on Friday and I’ll be going to Virginia this week to hold his hand a bit (in other words….clean his house, do his laundry, cook his meals and kiss his booboos). Ah, motherhood.

So often it is the offspring who are not very good at being in communication or maintaining those links who think it is commercial claptrap!
