To everyone out there enjoy your "mothering Sunday" whether you see your family or not, even to those who aren't mother's,  enjoy the day

I can't see my daughter today but no doubt she will phone me later, when things, hopefully, return to near normal we can do the catch ups then

Take care

Of course we celebrated it as Mothering Sunday and it still is celebrated in the church as such.
However, I think it is a good thing for children, of whatever age, to thank their mothers on a special day. I think of my mother every day but still remember the thrill of giving to her too.
It doesn’t have to be commercial.

Thank you for your wishes Lydiaann.

Happy Mothers Day to you too louisa maud.

Most of us are in a similar position with no visits from family today.

I have just telephoned my Son In Laws aunt who is 91 and never had any children of her own. We nattered for about 20 minutes and she is coping quite well.

A phone call goes a long way in these uncertain times.

Enjoy your day,

Dorrie

My mother rang me up today to thank us for the card and present.

I'd hidden the card and present in her house last weekend, and left her a "Treasure Map" with slightly cryptic clues on how to find "Ye Treasure!".

So today she was delighted to find it.

Our daughter and grandson have just been to visit, I organised the garden bench just outside the patio door and we sat inside, they had tea and a cake she had brought round outside and we were inside, I wore hygienic type gloves, my husband lent my grandson a ski type anorak as it was sunny but a bit chilly, it really was a laugh and to be honest one of the best visits.

It occurred to me so many could have done the same as we have done

Popped down to my local Asda first thing this morning - not many people around.  On leaving I was presented, as were all other shoppers, with a large bouquet of flowers, courtesy of the company.  :)
