Without a Mum like you,
....when I am cooking with her, ON HER OWN, WITHOUT THE OTHERS.
These were from The Fixer....
...and The Singer....
....and this from the Football Fanatic, which, let's face it, I'm never going to see again after today.
And then, there was this, from The Peacemaker. Now, not only will buying a book entitled
'The Mums Book...for the Mums who are best at everything'
get you endless Brownie points, let me tell you, I have flicked through it and this book will keep me in blog posts for months! In fact, I'm already mentally writing tomorrow's post. I think we'll call it 'Mothering Monday'. Yep, that's got legs...I can see a series.....
And if you thought that was it, think again. I nipped over to Bella's only to find this:
For always knowing what to say, no matter who she’s speaking to…..For keeping her sense of humour in situations when I would have lost mine, and so much more…For making me laugh, out loud, again and again; and then hours later, all over again…For sharing her strength and determination to make the next day better than today - for yes, that thought quietly shines through for those of us who really hear her words…Five daughters. One Mother……Jackie - You Rock!
I haven't commented yet. I don't know what to say.
Bella and I have never met in real life. In fact we've only 'known' each other for a couple of months, but I do know that if we ever did meet, we'd have a fantastic time! Now, I often read about blog friends meeting up and becoming great 'real' friends, but that is unlikely to happen with Bella and me, because very soon, she's moving to the other side of the world. I'm really glad for her, because travel and adventure is in her blood, because she's starting a new life, because New York is the most exciting city in the world.....but I'm sad too, because I would have loved to have had a mocha with her just once!
So, just for you, Bella, here's one for your sidebar.
Have this one on me!
And FINALLY......scroll down two posts for the answer to the puzzle!
Note to self: Never again do a post with this many pictures unless you have three and a half hours to spare.
