Mother’s Day and other stuff

Here in the UK it is Mother’s Day tomorrow, everyone is trying to get you to buy some overpriced stuff to show how much you love your Mum.


DON’T DO IT!!

Instead, make them something – a card, or draw a picture. Something special that only comes from you, and not some commercial attempt at extortion. But, even better, spend some quality time with you Mum, ask her about her life, learn about what she has seen and experienced – show an interest in her story, and listen and remember it all.

I lost my Mum some time ago now, and regret not paying more attention to the stories she told me about growing up, surviving the blitz, the things she did at school, and the amazing life she had. So, this year actually appreciate your mothers and learn from all they have been through during their lives, you won’t always get the chance.

… and on that note, here is Fidget’s Mum:

Bonnie
Happy Mother’s Day Bonnie, from your loving son Fidget.

One more quick thing, if you are in the UK,
don’t forget to put your clocks forward tonight!!
