Happy Mother’s day to all of us celebrating being a Mum, loving our own Mums or remembering our Mums. Certainly a Mother’s day like no other. I’m lucky enough to have three fine sons who make me so proud I could burst. I received three cards- number two son congratulating me on perfecting my parenting skills on number one, so number two was great; number three’s that said I’d done a great job because he was perfect, and number one son sent a card with Donald Trump on the front telling me I am the greatest- of course! Flowers and chocolates came too. Lucky me.
We had phone conversations too- all coping with life under Covid 19, working from home, getting food, worrying about health of various family members, wondering how people think social distancing means go to the seaside for the day and stand next to strangers. Still if these people want to volunteer for being the herd , so be it. Just as long as they don’t then moan that there is no hospital bed for them.
We continue to pack boxes for our maybe house move, at least it’s a major distraction. I have left out two knitting projects, one quilt to finish, one embroidery project and some cross stitch, and nine books to read. Will that be enough if we have to postpone I wonder?
The library closes tomorrow at 5pm, no volunteers required , the part time staff will all come in. I cried when I read the news- we worked so hard to keep it open when funding was cut three years ago. Such a sad day.
But to the light… tonight at 7pm I shall light a candle along with lots of other people to shine a light of hope across the world.
Stay healthy everyone. xx
