Yesterday was Mothering Sunday and my first Mother’s Day as a single parent. Roo had been away the weekend with her dad and I was excited to have her back and my heart melted when I answered the door and there she stood in her new animal print skater dress for Tesco and red Dr Martens clutching flowers, a bag and her cards.
Her grin was wide and the words ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ burst from her lips and she couldn’t wait to get inside and show me what she had got.
I opened the cute card which she had written, and then turned to the gifts. A beautiful bouquet of fragrant pink hyacinths in a vintage style tin basket smelt absolutely divine and she knows I love flowers. Then there was also my gorgeous jewelled ‘Mum’ mug that I have proudly sipped coffee and tea from today.
