Happy Mothers Day, or Mothering Sunday as it is traditionally called over here in the UK, to all of you lovely mamas, whether your children are with you or missing from their lives.
We decided not to take my Mum out this year; she never really enjoys it, everywhere is too noisy and too crowded, prices are put up especially and service isn't good. So I made veggie lasagne with garlic bread and salad and bought a home-made Victoria sponge from a farm on Dartmoor. Both our Mums got freshly cut daffodils from our garden. (Must show you photos of all the forget-me-knots that finally flowered this year).
I had a few pangs of, "it should be me" but for the most part it was a lovely day.
So, five good things from the last week:
My Mum. Who supports us beyond anything we can ever thank her for, who loves Ray as if he were her own son, who cooks chicken for our kittehs just because, whose love for my Dad "in sickness and in health" is an inspiration. Today and every day.
Ray's mum. Who sat with me when they bought George back for a final goodbye. Who wanted to see her grandson and remarked on his long legs. Who told me I was "a world of good for Ray".
Ray's all clear.

An adventure to the north coast. Wide beaches. Big waves. Sea mist. Breathing space.
