Dear Mum

Another Mother's Day and again I think of you and so many of my friends who were mums who are no longer with us.  I miss all of you but life takes some and leaves others and we will never know why.

This morning we popped up to K & B's for morning tea.  AM was there with her fiancee CD and daughter CT and it's always great to see them.  K & B have a new outdoor setting under their new patio and it is all looking really good.

They have some cimbidium orchids in bud (just one flower open so far) which made me think of when you grew them at Joondanna.  We have never had much success with them for some reason so decided they were not for us.  We do well with other plants but just not orchids which is disappointing.

Their back garden is really very pretty now and the front lawn is coming good too.  B puts it down to the reticulation they had put in a year or so ago.  It has certainly made a big difference to their garden and of course there is so much less work to do changing sprinklers etc.

We came home and had a light lunch and put our respective feet up for an hour or two.  We both tend to tire easier these days which I guess is to be expected at our age.  P is fortunate as he can nap easily but I have always been the same and unable to sleep in the daytime so no nanna naps for yours truly.

Not much more to report.  Just wanted you to know I was thinking of you today but then you are in my thoughts most days.  I guess birthdays and special days are that wee bit more special.

Love, as always


  1. Lovely. And this non nanna loves her nanna naps. When she can get them...

  2. Thanks EC. I lay (lie) down and close my eyes and they spring open again if it is daytime. Even in a darkened room that happens. Perhaps when I get really old it will happen : )

  3. Gosh, I can practically fall asleep standing up regardless of the time. Sit me down and I'm gonners for sure. Happy Mothers Day.

  4. Hope your Mother's Day was a good one too. You sound like my other half. He can go to sleep sitting upright on a kitchen chair although I must admit since he got his CPAP machine for his sleep apnoea he doesn't doze off as he once did. We both get much more restful sleep during the night.

  5. Happy Mothers Day Mimsie, we had perfect weather didn't we. xxx

    1. Thanks Rae. Yes, the weather was picture perfect, so fortunate. xxx
