My Mother's Day

This was the card from eldest son, shame he didn't put Love on it but it was handmade and much appreciated. He also made me a cup of tea.

This was the email (!?!) from youngest son. Was he away you ask, ummm, no. Bizarre, quite bizarre! To be fair he'd wanted to buy me something the day before but I declined (we were in Poundland).

It's not that they are horrid little tikes it's just that Sundays are rugby days and really there wasn't time for any namby pamby mother's day stuff. So off they went early to rugby and I got to stay at home, listening to the Archers and Desert Island Discs whilst cooking for my mum.

The day before we had had a lovely day me and my boys at Cambridge Science Festival (I forgot to take my camera) and saw the most amazing Man versus Machine display which was brilliant. Have a look here to get an idea. So really I have nothing to complain about, I got to spend the day with them on Saturday and with my mum on Sunday so it was perfect really.


  1. Mothers Day emails? He'll go far ;-)

    Fancy a coffee next week before the hols?

  2. That made me chuckle. I live with the equivalent 'man-version'.
    Thankfully there are a few of us who just 'get' that sport takes precedence! Future girlfriends better brace themselves - I can tell you, nothing changes! I once got a cadbury's cream egg for my birthday (sporting engagements meant he was too busy to get to the shops) - tee hee!


Thank you for leaving a comment. I like to reply if an email address is given but often they are "no reply" so please don't be offended if I can't reply. Thank you. x
