Mother's Day Plus One

Yesterday was a pretty big deal here in the UK. Not only did the clocks move forward an hour (which I was awake for) but it was also Mothering Sunday/Mother's Day. That's right my American friends, we have different Mother's Days. We have Father's Day on the same day though, so I don't know what that's all about.
So for the first time since Christmas I hitched up my belt and went to see my dear mother. I don't get to see her all that often really. I think Christmas, Mother's Day, and birthdays (mine and hers are five days apart) are about it. I think one of the things I'll do when I get my driving license is go visit her more often. I just have to remember where she lives. Thank God for mums? Thank God for GPS!

It was an interesting visit because, unbeknownst to me, one of my older sisters was there with her boyfriend and four kids. It made the whole visit a lot more fun and memorable. I couldn't walk past the kitchen without the three youngest coming up to me and giving me a hug. They all love me because they barely see me.

I gave my mum a card, some incense, and a kick ass colour changing candle. My sister has said she wants one too. The glass is heat sensitive so it changes colour when the candle is lit. It actually changed colour when she went to light the candle, which was pretty cool. Now I think about it, I kind of want one too.

My mum might have her troubles at times, but she's always got a big smile and a lot of love for me, and I'm more than happy to return it. I have a pretty good idea for what to get her for her birthday in a few months' time. I just hope I can pull it off.


  1. That's the best answer to "Why do you want your driver's license?" I've heard lately.

    I think the difference in Mother's Day and time change has something to do with driving on the wrong side of the road.

  2. Aww sounds like you celebrated a wonderful Mother's Day with family! You are a lovely son.

  3. "They all love me because they barely see me."
    Covet those kids, they're true family. (^:

  4. It sounds like you had a great time!

  5. Mother's Day down under is the second Sunday in May, just so you know, mothers are amazing, well mine is and hers was so and I am told by my girls they think I am pretty amazing
