It’s Mothers’ Day here in France today.
I hope everybody received something as lovely as an emerald brooch in amongst garden picked roses like I did!
(Sorry for the lack of accents in the title but I need to do tricky things on my keyboard to produce them and then they don’t always appear)
Today, 30th May, is Mothers’ Day in France. It’s quite a lot later than in the U.K. When we first moved here I had the English and French Mothers’ Days but now, as we have lived here for 5 years,(and I might get a reputation for being greedy) I just have the French one. My girls get a bit confused as, because we get English T.V., they see all the ads for Mothers’ Day in the U.K. and then sort of forget about it by the time it comes round in France.
Anyway, despite the fact that they had bought the card back in March, they remembered not to give it to me until today and, because my youngest had dropped a big hint that they had not forgotten, I had to stay in bed until they bought me up my card, pressie and cup of tea. My girls not being early risers, I had to lay awake for an hour until they got out of bed!
I love my card. It is especially relevant as Mr. Tialys is 6’4″ tall and the tallest of the rest of us is 5’5″ (and that’s not me!).
For those of you that know us – I know, I know, this photo is around 3 years out of date but I haven’t got any (decent) recent ones as they barely stagger into the light these days *must take more ‘sister’ photos*.
