Its the 1st of May, and already we are being bombarded with special offers for Mothers day!
I have just come back from Sydney where I joined with my 2 brothers to help celebrate our Mums 80th Birthday with a party and weekend of family time.
Mum was only 20 when I first met her, and I know you are amazed at what a good looking kid I was!
Over the next 60 years a lot has changed, I grew more hair, and then lost most of it, we moved countries a few times and and I got two brothers
At 80 mum is doing great, living a full life, and showing no signs of slowing down.
It’s always good to catch up with family, it seems to get harder and harder as the family grows and kids and grand kids get complex lives of their own, but every time we make the effort, I come away thinking that it was worth it. and we always try to make some pictures.
