We are betwixt and between Christmas and the New Year and this morning on our lovely frosty walk we decided “Twixtmas” was the best term to describe the 5 languid days between our two major festivities. It does now seem to have become an actual thing – otherwise known as […]

I’M REALLY SORRY, BUT I’M STILL SHOWING OFF ABOUT MOTHER’S DAY and revelling in my Queen Bee status as single mother who rules the roost……
LOOK at what my 20 year old university son sent me – a card that he actually thought about several days before the event – which is massively impressive given how all his plans are generally only made three minutes before anything actually happens. HE ACTUALLY PRE-ordered it online AND NOT BOUGHT AT A PETROL STATION!!!:-
Here is his card, with a gorgeous “thanks for everything you’ve done for me, I couldn’t do anything without you” message…set against a backdrop of beautiful flowers bought by my daughter.
Happy happy HAPPEEEEEE mother:-
