Mothers Day in the UK today, here’s my card from D:
It also had “happy” veg with googly eyes on the back.
Mothers Day in our house meant “man flu” – yes Hubbie still has it – an adherence to the usual routines and a few meltdowns from D, usually as a result of play that wasn’t going her way with T.
I couldn’t see my mum (infectious flu germs) but did do a blog post for her (see earlier post today) and we did speak to her.
I wasn’t “doing” twitter this time last year, and it’s only via timelines that you realise that people today are obviously missing their angel children and their mums who have passed away and then you realise how lucky you are to all be together today – even if at times Mothers Day seems another excuse for Clintons to make money (all their card displays will have changed by the morning, making way for Easter?)
So, on reflection -and man flu aside – my family have all got our health, the children are all happy – and that makes this Mumma happy too.
Comments/RTs as ever welcomed Jx
A post for my mum
This time last year, shortly before Mothers Day, we did not know if you were coming home.
The doctors took us into a room, a room where there was already a box of tissues on the little table and we were told you may not last the night. Big lettering on your notes “Do Not Resuscitate”. But somehow, you got through that night and every other since.
I joke that you’ve got your own season ticket for the hospital, most of the staff on the various wards know you by sight and the standard procedure is that ambulance crews take you to CDU upon admission to save waiting in A&E for hours.
I’m so glad you’re still around for this Mothers Day, last year you didn’t recognise the significance of the day and we had to read the cards to you.
This year we’ve talked on the phone, I can’t risk passing any flu bugs to you so we’ll see you when we’re better. D pressed the button to call and was the first to wish you Happy Mothers Day, getting slightly confused and calling you “Mum” as that’s the listing on my phone.
Love you Mum
