Granny and Mothers Day

Hello All.

And a happy Mothers Day to all the Mom’s out there.
What the hell…a happy day to ALL the ladies..Moms or not.

I nearly didn’t go to the beach yesterday.
When the clouds are over the mountain like that you know there is a howling South Easter.
It turned out to be quite pleasant.
The beach is fairly sheltered from that particular wind.
There was hardly a soul around.
A few surfers.
And, in the distance, a woman who appeared to be dancing.
We avoided her.

I have been really spoilt this morning.
The granddaughter I adopted brought me breakfast in bed.
Scrambled egg on toast.
Two pancakes.
One savoury and one sweet.
And a framed pencil drawing of a horse that she had done.

As she was away for my birthday I got my birthday present yesterday.
A collage saying “happy birthday Mom, I love U, from Pam.
On the other side she had written a poem.
I am going to share it with you.
Please don’t tell her!

To my amazing mother
There is no other
Person like you
You are the morning dew
On the grass of my heart
Till death do us part
You are the sunshine to my day
And a real beauty if I might say
I will love you unconditionally
And I thank you for taking care of me
I am so lucky to have you as my Mommy
And thanks for being there for me.

A really special kid.
Just love her to bits.

And now I guess I had better do some housework.
Not that I want to.


  1. Pam is so sweet, and talented too.
    Love the pic of Jasmine.

    • Thanks RD…she is so special.

  15. The poem brought a lump to my throat.

    • Don’t feel alone Tilly…me too!

  16. I was going to wish you a happy mother’s day yesterday but thought it would be trite and lost amongst the well wishing. So I put it off until a warped idea came to mind. For you,my lady:

    Roses are red
    violets are blue
    give Granny presents
    or she’ll sic a baboon on you!

    • Hahahaha…I love it Morgue…thank you.

  17. So sweet. I received a handwritten long thought out letter telling me I didn’t make as many mistakes as I think I have made. How nice of my daughter to overlook so much.

    • come on Linda…I am sure you did just fine.

  18. You big beautiful heart! No wonder you get poems and drawings and breakfast in bed!

    • Stop it Souldipper…you are making me blush…it doesn’t suit me!
