"When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child." - Sophia Loren
Happy Mothers Day!
The prompt is very truthful and today is a good example of it. Although it is meant to be a day when the Mother gets treated, in our house it is no different to any other day and there are jobs to get done that won’t get done if I don’t do them. I have had no card or presents other than the card that Zoë made me at nursery the other day which I shall cherish. I did get a cup of tea in bed so I suppose that is something. But otherwise the day goes on.
I have done a big pile of ironing but did cheat at the end and decide that the non-essential stuff could be left for another day. We are going to the in-laws for lunch later so I need to get on with stuff. I have a few tweaks to make to her card as I am not overly happy with it. The weekly food shop has to be done too. The house could do with a hoover round but I will run out of time so that will have to wait.
I am dying to play with my camera after my course yesterday. I learned loads. All stuff that I have read from books but it actually made some sense when someone was telling you it and I could ask questions. I treated myself to a new lens for portraits, so I would love to play with that, but am just too busy, so it will have to wait.
This is the Mother's Day card I made for my mum-in-law. I added the hearts this morning as it looked a bit bare without them.
