So we had Mother’s day here yesterday, I know it’s a different day across the big pond but it’s March 14th here. So, Mother’s day times, my mother-in-law, my Mum and me. It was also my hubbies’ birthday yesterday, his Dad’s birthday tomorrow and eldest’s birthday on Sunday next.
My Mum’s birthday is somewhat of a movable feast. The story goes that when she was born on the 13th of March the nurse couldn’t bring herself to put the 13th on the child’s birth certificate. Presumably condemning her to a life of bad luck. So she entered the 12th instead. Growing up in boarding school my Mum celebrated her birthday on the nearest day off – St. Patrick’s Day and during my childhood on the day myself and my sister saw her, a Sunday. So, now it’s any-one’s guess as to when we celebrate. This year for us it will be today. so happy birthday Mum! See you soon.
I hope that if you’re a Mum, Mom, Gran, Nana or whatever, that you had a lovely day.
