Yes, today it’s Happy Mothers Day to all UK Mums :-)

My lovely adult autistic daughter sent me a parcel containing an ‘I love Mum’ plaque, a silver photo frame with a photo of herself in it … and a small tablet of Thorntons Belgian White chocolate. Son is too cash-strapped to manage a card or present but he phoned this morning to wish me a Happy Mothers Day.

Even better, it’s a glorious sunny day – Steve is going out painting all day equipped with the essential packed lunch and large flask of weak black tea. The Gallery is closed today so I’ll be out in the garden trying to catch up on all the jobs that are awaiting me.

Have a lovely day everyone, Mum or not!

    How did I miss your journal entry? Belated Happy Mother’s Day! Of course, I knew it was Mothering Sunday as my beloved Mum is in Scotland and I have to keep track of when the UK one falls… The upside for her is that she gets remembered on both UK and North American Mother’s days. After all, if the Queen can have 2 birthdays…
