In defence of unmade beds or how I spend mothers day
"Always make your bed first thing in the morning" my mother would say"Make sure your bathroom and kitchen are really clean . That is the sign of a good housewife . Anybody can keep their drawing room clean"
But if an made-up bed spells a on-top-of-things-ness
An unmade bed which has had a few hours of morning snuggles, tea, book reading and general lollygagging spells pure happiness
Its always seemed ironic to me, that one of the things that most mothers of young children (including me) want on Mothers day, is a day away from their children.
This mothers day , I thought that I would do something different
I would simply enjoy being a mother as much as I could
So we lolled away the morning
And jumped away the afternoon
We ate pancakes( me ) and cookies ( r) for lunch
I talked to my beloved mother for a long time
The sun came out for a change
DH got me flowers, pancakes and a crazyexpensive instrument of torture( hair straightener) that I so coveted
And a lovely mothers day it was
Happy mothers day to all you wonderful mothers
