Happy Mothers' Day
Happy Mother's Day to everyone who has a mother, and everyone who is a mother! Here are some things I love about my own Mum. She is like a bear. She's fierce and protective but also warm and snuggly. She taught us how to sew and knit and cook, and we were always allowed to do things that other children weren't allowed to do, like make a mess and light fires in the sandpit. We made things with real nails and sharp objects. She made us special dinners on our birthdays and baked cakes with decorations, and set jelly into orange halves for our birthday parties. She kept a massive garden that had lots of great spaces to hide-and-seek-in. Now she is a Grandma to 12 (or 13 in October) grandchildren, and she does that very well too! Thank you Mum for all that you are and all that you do!
