I want to use this Sunday’s post to say a big Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing Mums, Grandmas, Grannys, Aunties, Sisters and also Mums that are no longer with us.
I want to say thank you to my Mum for always looking after me selflessly since I was born to now when I have left home. Thank you for chopping all your hair off because I was scared of the hairdryer, thank you for dressing me up as Cindy Lou Who from the Grinch on World Book Day and thanks for letting me bring my washing home from Uni every week. Although I don’t always appreciate you being lairy on Facebook, I do appreciate you supporting me in whatever I do. I’ve never known anybody able to find something that is “lost” like you, i swear you summon things out of thin air. I may have moved out but I still need you to help me sew the hole in my coat pocket and help me backup my laptop and as much as it annoys me when you say it, you really do know me better than I know myself. Unfortunately I can’t include a photo of just us two as you avoid the camera like the plague so you will have to get what you are given- side note: pose more it would make my life much easier please and thankyou. I hope that one day I can be even half the Mum that you are to me, I would be lost without!
I also want to say thank you to my Grandma and my Granny for telling it how it is when my outfits looked like shit, for sitting and reading with me for hours and for force feeding me every form of pudding you could whip up at short notice, and for watching Harry Potter a million and one times upon my request. Thanks to the Granny for unnecessarily spoiling me whilst calling my sister a wicked child (you are so right). Thanks also to Grandma for patiently helping me draw out my family tree and producing no end of school projects, you let us get away with murder (and it’s much appreciated).
We may put our mothers through hell at times but it doesn’t mean we don’t love them, I think the most important thing to remember is it doesn’t matter how old you get and how clever you think you are you always need your Mum. So look after them and maybe just occasionally put the kettle on and empty the dishwasher instead of rolling your eyes in disgust.
So again a very Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful ladies out there, without you we would be nothing!
Lots of Love
