As I'm working I won't be able to visit my Mum in Nottinghamshire but I'm sure we'll have a nice long chat on the phone. I have just been choosing the flowers for both my Mum and Chris' Mum. I have chosen pinks and purples for my Mum (now you know where I get it from) and a spring selection in a creamy coloured, old-fashioned bucket for Audrey, Chris' Mum.
I'm hoping I will be able to visit Mum this coming week as she hasn't been feeling too well lately. I do wish she lived nearer so that I could just pop in whenever I wanted as I miss seeing her. I carry her picture with me all the time though – she was just three years old when this photo was taken. Apologies for the quality, but it was taken eighty two years ago!!!!!
Fortunately I will be able to spend a little time with my own two offspring before work on Sunday. We collected Sophie from the airport this morning just before seven, so I have spent the morning hearing all about her trip to Australia and looking at her photos. I may post a couple next week once she has transferred them on to her computer!
One of her stories did have me a little concerned. She didn't have good weather but their guide had persevered with a trip to the Blue Mountains anyway. It was raining heavily and as she climbed a narrow path, one foot slid towards the edge of the cliff and the other slid in the opposite direction. There was nothing to hang on to so she just had to stay as still as possible until the guide 'rescued' her! It's a good job I didn't know about it at the time!
She has gone for a nap which I must confess I was contemplating doing, but no time, I have cakes and soup to make before I leave for work. I'll see you at five for Lotus Shoes and then the two hour finale of the Elemis Series at 8pm with Keeley… can't wait!
Much love, Julia xx
