This is definately my favourite day of the year, it involves all the people I love most....my mum, my husband and my kids. I got woken this morning with tea and kisses....always a good start. Bruce and the boys got me a new dressing gown (from the men's section, lol) it's grey and black and fluffy and gorgeous, and my husband and kids have matching ones.....we look like the pajama mafia!!! Will post some pix later. I also got some Winnie-the-Pooh toe socks and some argyle knee socks...SO cute. The boys are cleaning their rooms ATM (!!!!) and this afternoon they're going to clean my car (!!!!!!) Bruce is cooking today, so we're having a pork roast for dinner. Bruce offered to take us all out somewhere, but I really love the idea of spending the day at home with my family. Mum is still in Townsville visiting Ingrid, so we had a chat this morning, she'll be back on Wednesday.
Apart from the pampering and gifting....there are so many other reasons to celebrate today. I firmly believe that I was put on this planet to be a mother. It's my calling. There are things that I get wrong every day, and will probably continue to get wrong till the day I move on, but the motivation remains the same. The knowledge that one day my sons will take their places in the world and live happy and productive lives. And if I can be responsible for even a tiny part of that, then I've achieved what I wanted.
This post is dedicated to all the mothers in the world and to mine in particular.
Love you mum xox
