Happy Mothering Sunday

We Brits  celebrate Mothering Sunday today and so i would just like to wish all mothers everywhere a much blessed Mothering Sunday. Here is a photo of my parents that i  managed to  get taken off an old slide so that i could give it to them in a frame for their Wedding Anniversary in December last year. They were so surprised as they had forgotten there was a slide with a photo of them amongst all the old slides they had bought when they lived in Hong Kong, when Dad was in the Navy.

Here is my Mum looking super sassy along with my rather rugged looking Daddy…the little boy is my brother, Philip, pictured sitting on Dad’s knee.  I was ‘made in Hong Kong’ so i may have been in my Mummy’s tummy at the time this photo was taken, my family returned to England before i was born. Happy Mother’s Day Mum! Love you!

      Moni, thank you! And to you also!

      Therese, ‘mother’s Day’ is an americanism, it was always ‘mothering sunday’ over here for hundreds of years, before it became known as ‘Mother’s Day’ 🙂 The priest at my parish today said that ‘mothering sunday’ originated because it was the day when children would take flowers to the priest to be blessed so they could give blessed flowers to their mothers to thank them for all they do.
