Mothers’ Day began with torrential rain. My ants pants internet was driving me crazy. And my children were all otherwise involved.
But my, how things can change! The skies had cleared by the afternoon, and my DD arrived just in time to hear me swearing my undying gratitude down the phone line to “Kerry” in a Singapore call centre for finally configuring my wireless repeater.
DD’s suggestion that we take The Princess and Chloe for a walk to the park was just the best offer I’d had all day. With autumn leaves crackling underfoot we wrapped our hands around warm cups of take-away coffee and watched while The Princess tried out all the new play equipment. I had such a lovely Mothers’ Day – and even old Chloe had something to smile about!
