So what has dropped through the letterbox this week? Mainly bills, statements and the usual amount of trash which heads straight to the recycling. There was however one very important envelope which I somehow knew had to be saved till Sunday for opening. It was of course a Mother's Day card from the absent student.
It was Mother's Day or as my Gran always said Mothering Sunday here in the UK. The absent student had already given me a lovely bunch of tulips when she was home last weekend. They are still looking beautiful.
Older daughter is what you you might call "a chip off the old block" or her father's daughter. She had dashed out and bought me some delicious chocolates. Flowers though? Why would you want to go out and buy flowers when the florist is sure to be charging over the rate because of the special date particularly when the whole garden and drive is covered in tempting daffodils? She was caught in the act by her auntie "thinning " the flower borders but they still look lovely to me especially with the classy bow.
Don't worry Lady Ella they were from our gardens and not from the side of the road!
