Mother's day. I've been lucky enough to have 8 of them, each year getting better and better. As a single mum I sent the kid off to the local shops with my sister and told her to splurge. Regretting that now, of course, but hey, I'm worth it!
Beautiful cards- 2 handmade ones on Friday after school, the cat one today....
and beautiful things written.
Hand written (and made up) poems; apparently i'm a 'fizzbangeriffic' mum!!
And the lovely things- choccy (to share of course), beautiful tea cup and candles. I obviously dropped enough hints teehee!
the tea cup is enormous- at least a double! here it is compared with my old (chipped) mug.
As I sit on the couch blogging while she sorts the underwear from a weeks worth of clean washing (at her insistence, I swear!) I think of my troubled relationship with both my parents; I really believe you earn the title of 'mother' and hence don't believe you need to give birth to be a mum. Happy Mother's day to all the step mums, adopted mum's, surrogate mums and of course, the single mums! (And all the 'normal' ones, of course!)
Beautiful presents from your beautiful girl. And well done you! I know it isn't easy being a single mum. xox
