Happy Mothers Day to my amazing and beautiful mother who with her strength, patience, devotion and most of all love has been my inspiration as a mum and whom I try to emulate daily.
She is my best friend and the person with whom I can be my true self (warts and all!) and who will listen and care and not think I am a loony when I rave and rant, dream and dither or whine and wail.
She is also going to kill me for posting this fab pic of us all frocked up as part of a wedding party in the 80's.
(But how awesome are those puff sleeves! And that may be the beginning of my capelet obsession).
I have had a wonderful day, full of love and homemade gifts and hope that all of the ladies out there who may be mums or grandmothers or even aunts have had a special day with all of their nearest and dearest.
