This is what Mother’s Day is all about for me.
My boy. The best thing that ever happened.
We took this photo last year to send to my niece in North Carolina who loves cuddly toys.
Wishing all the Mums out there the loveliest of days.
It is a double celebration today.
It is my birthday.
I have decided it is a year where I will be honest with myself and will do all I can to live how I really want to. No more excuses.
I’d like to share with you a literary masterpiece about birthdays.
No writer in the history of writing has topped it before.
No writer has topped it since –
Happy Birthday to you
You’re a hundred and two
You look like a monkey
And you smell like one too
Now I’m off to eat some chocolate cake!
Lorraine’s in the doo-doo again … once more, she’s forgotten that Australians celebrate Mother’s Day on a different day to what we do.
So, we had the adverts telling us to shower the ladies in our lives with chocolate and other goodies back in February … although Mothering Sunday, as it used to be known, ALWAYS falls in Lent.
Not that it discourages all that many ladies who like chocolate! 😀
Well! Happy Mother’s Day AND Happy Birthday to you!
I nearly forgot … maybe you’d like the thought on a card Lorraine had, several years ago.
‘Anyone can be a mother, but it takes someone special to be a Mummy’
Hope you had a good day!
Well, Happy Birthday. Two celebrations in one day? How greedy 🙂
And you do right – live as you want to – an important message.
Oh dearest, sweetest Selma, Happy Happy Mother’s Day AND Happy Birthday.
Also, good for you on your declaration! We all know if any one is going to do it, it will be you!
Happy Birthday and Happy Mother’s Day to you all wrapped into one! 🙂

With a huge bear hug that could really squeeze the life out of you!
Save a piece of chocolate cake for me!
