It is a celebration of mothers all over the world, of motherhood and all the wonderful things are mothers do for us. Mothers day in the UK fell on a beautiful sunny day this year, and we had planned to go out for a drive and some lunch with the girls, with Stratford being top of the likely list. That was until the germs kicked in, and the poor wife is too sick to go out.
We didn’t have a plan B, but obviously we weren’t going to be leaving the house on any road trips today. With the wife feeling rough, it seemed like the best thing to get the girls out of the house for a while, give her a bit of peace and quiet, and get a few bits for lunch at the same time as we were clearly going to be eating at home instead. The wife didn’t have much of an appetite, but I cooked a Sunday roast all the same, and was pleased to see her tucking into her food when I served it up. I took the girls out so they still got to see grandparents on both sides, and we could at least drop cards off so the day wasn’t a total loss, even if we didn’t get to enjoy a family day out in Stratford-Upon-Avon in the sunshine. Sometimes that’s how it goes though, the best laid plans of mice and men, and all that!
What did everyone else do for mothers day?
