I moved in to my house, as a newly single mum, almost 12 years ago to the day.
The first weekend we were here was mothers day and the girls and I went up to Norwich and spent the weekend there. They were 4 and 7.
They are now 16 and 19 and mothers day has changed a little. Jenny spends a lot of time with her boyfriend: she stayed there last night and has been at work today, but she came home first, just to make me a cup of tea for mothers day and to give me her card. Beccy is slogging away for exams at the moment, but she took time to make me a montage of pictures, on the computer, of the three of us over the last 12 years, set to one of my favourite songs ever (Goo goo dolls: Iris). I watched the video and realised that, actually, the three of us have 'done good' and her video made me very tearful (in a good way)
Now for me, this is a fantastic way to spend mothers day

Happy Mothers day to all of you out there, hope you're having a lovely day
