If You Go Down To The Woods Today...
Today's Mother's Day, it's also doubly special because it's my Mum's birthday. Happy Birthday Mum! So today we've had a special day at Grandma's with pressies and picnics and cake etc etc
Anyhoo---the purpose of this post it to note that my mum really is a gem. She's the sort of Mum who 'just gets on with it'. Doesn't make a big fuss, always puts herself last (much to our annoyance)and would far rather buy a wee gift to make someone else smile than anything nice for herself! She's also mad around the edges, great fun and a trooper when anything needs doing. She's always been this way and I consider myself so lucky to have her as mine.
Mum has been busy these last few weeks---daughter's school is having a craft day that's coming up soon. And Grandma has been busying away the hours in a flurry of pins making something for her wee grandchild to take in as a contribution. The result is...invasion of the mini teddies---please see above!
They're dinky, their heads move and all of them need good new homes!
Many an instalment of Ice Dancing has been missed because of these little chaps. Mum is finally about to finish her last few arran baby hats (in the shape of walnut whips) and then the pins are going away!
Thanks Mum. We hope the kidlets enjoy them!
