I'd just like to say HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to myself and all the other mothers in my hood and beyond.
I'd like to make special mention of my mother. Lovely girl she is. And wasn't she cute. She hasn't changed much even though she will be 76 next week. She would have coloured this photo herself. Not when she was that age of course. That was her job – painting black and white photos and she was about the best I've ever seen. She has a lot of patience. Well she did have four kids and that'll either teach you great patience or snap you.
And I'd like to give a special shout out to my good friend Bubbles, a mother without her daughter, and Jem, a daughter without her mother, and Emjay, living far away from her children and Worker, who had bad news regarding her Mum.
Bloody mothers and kids, they really mess with your head and your heart.
Oh, and a little note to my dear three children (who aren't around today.). When I said I didn't want anything for Mothers Day.
I DIDN'T MEAN IT!!!
