mothers day


Being in a different city means no blinkily making my way downstairs and flicking on the coffee machine for a Mothers Day breakfast but I was at least organised about getting a little parcel in the post for my Mum. I was going to go down the Jamie Oliver magazine/something sweet and decadent tasting route but fell like a bit of a 'feeder' giving people chocolatey things when I know spring is often a time of detox and attempted self restraint before the summer so I went down the white tea and slightly naff but ultimately pleasurable route of a Meryl Streep boxset for inducing (delete of appropriate) blubbing, stomach rumbling (Julie and Julia), guffawing, cringing and general sighs of 'oh meryl' from under a thickly blanketed spot on the sofa.

I like Mothers Day for remembering how cool/interesting/strong headed/ inspiring/kind/clever my Mum is plus this is the last year I can tell people with a twinkle in my eye that she's still not 40 yet. Hope you've all had a nice day with/remembering the important women in your life. This song always makes me think of my Mum..

Nice with the Meryl, my lazy ass managed a card with a genuinely thoughtful message (I'm too sarcastic for latent enthusiasm). I mentioned in passing I'd get her a present and she insisted she didn't need/want one. Gah, mother issues. Anyway, in case I haven't previously mentioned, love your posts foreverrrr!

Such a lovely package! I'm lucky my mom was visiting me in NYC last weekend for Mother's Day so I was able to spend quality time with her. Actually she was in the city last year as well - I took her to the see the Harlem Gospel Choir. So cheesy...
