Today was my 3rd Mother’s Day and the first that I received a wonderful bunch of pipecleaner and tissue paper flowers and a beautiful handmade card from Olivia. I knew there was a reason to send her to pre-school!
We have all had a wonderful day pottering around, we went for a walk and fed the ducks and generally had a lazy day. Although it’s lovely to spend the day with my family, it really does remind me how much I miss my own mum.
She is still with us, my parents just chose to live in another country so we don’t really see them as much as we should. I guess when you have a family of your own you start to realise how much you need your own mum again! Skype is great for conversations but it certainly does not replace the feel of a lovely big hug when you need it!
