Mothering Sunday

There's a vast difference between daughters and sons in this house.  My daughter loves to spoil people and make a fuss of them.  She puts much thought into gifts for birthdays, Christmas and Mother's/Father's Days and lovingly wraps them, choosing cards with totally appropriate wording in them - a true believer that it is 'more fun to give than to receive' (although she does love to 'receive' too!).  When her friend invited her to her Hen Weekend and she found out that it meant she would be travelling home on Mothering Sunday and wouldn't be back until the evening she was upset that it may 'spoil' my day.  So she came and spent last weekend with me, cooked lunch, arrived with gifts and card and we celebrated early.
My son, on the other hand, will quite possibly forget that it is Mothering Sunday until he returns home from his early morning shift working at the airport.  I am sure that his sister has harassed him prior to going on her holiday to make sure a card has been purchased!
So to all you mums out there, I hope that you are being showered with love and appreciation in whatever way your children find to show such things!  
I've become lazy at publishing my 365+1 photos on a daily basis but I have been taking them and here is this week's collage

Since both of mine are boys I am very fortunate that they are very attuned to celebrations regardless of the holiday. I hope you had a lovely day :)
