A nice surprise

Picture the scene, the end of a busy week, raining,cold Mother's Day on Sunday.I was feeling a bit tired and thinking about my Mum - on the way home from work I bought a lovely little white basket with lilac campanula planted in it to put beside her photo on our sideboard. One because it's Mother's Day on Sunday and two because it would have been her 81st birthday on Monday, so a nice little basket was just the ticket. I'd decided not to take flowers to the church as it's still pretty frosty and they wouldn't last very long and she wouldn't have liked that. Anyway I was wondering what to have for dinner as himself was out on the Razz with eldest son and his friend going to see an 'AC DC 'tribute band, as I walked in to the house I was surprised to see our youngest son. He had come home for the weekend totally unexpectedly,and he'd bought a lovely bunch of flowers too. My mood lifted straight away and the house is now alive with noise and washing ! Amazing how us Mums are so easily pleased isn't it ?
