Happy Mother's Day !!!
Another year when I no longer have either a mother or a mother-in-law to buy flowers or cards for. And I know I used to curse when I left it a bit late. And I know I used to rail about it being just another commercialised con. But even so, it leaves a gap in the things-I-should-be-doing.
So on Friday in Waitrose I bought three bunches of freesias. One for Rosemary (my mother), one for Christine (my mother-in-law), and one for me. And here they all are, in my favourite vase on my kitchen windowsill.
The gap is still there. But so are the memories.
Happy Mother's Day to all.
