Mother`s Day.

Mother`s Day here in the UK. No, I didn`t get a lie-in because it`s also the day the clocks go an hour forwards here to British Summer Time so you lose an hour of sleep, boo hiss. I got chocolate from Duncan though (mostly eaten so no pix) and some hair scrunchies from Mairi. This last present involved her taking her long suffering father on a visit to Claire`s Accessories, poor man. I`m amazed she let him get out again in under three hours.

The kids also made me two great cards.

From Mairi (aged 4)



This is a picture of me, I hope you realise. As a ballerina. (!)

From Duncan (Aged 9)



Also a picture of me... a slightly more realistic one this time! I hope you spotted the anatomically correct flyer on the wheel, the Rowan band on the ball of yarn and all the FOs? His powers of observation are uncanny... especially when it comes to the cat that we have not got yet.

The sheep, btw, is saying "I`m only a sheep but I am important".

My kids are great.
