Sharon's going off to her family Mum's day thingy, I opted out in advance because of being crap, but I could probably manage today. However, I think I'll stay opted out. Sharon's mum utterly rocks out. She's a very cool woman and I love her heaps. But I've pushed my semi-wellness hard the last two days and then forgot to take my tablet last night before bed (oops!).
My mum has opted to stay home too, just because that's what she does if we don't push her to go out. But she loved her pressie. It's rare to get a strong reaction from mum, but she was over-joyed with her paint set. It's rare she shows an interest in much, so when she showed one in painting, we were keen to encourage it. And it made a change from an Elvis-related gift.
Hang on, Danny's a part of this gift. Are you sure it's not a bomb?
Mum realises it's a paint set. It's rare to see her this happy. Brings tears to my eyes.
Hmmm... Still might go off...
'I'll be able to paint outside!'
Big happy smiling mum! Yay!
Got Shaz a mum's day pressie too, because hopefully she'll bear my
demon spawn offspring at some point. I've been going to do this for myself, but suddenly realised (in my distress that I'd not been able to go out and find her a pressie) it'd work as a pressie for her. I don't know if she'll use it, but she's a geek girl, so she now has her LJ account paid for for 12 months. I'll also make her some icons, if she'd like. Love you sweetie!
And lastly, must give Bernadette, my birth-mum a ring today. She rocks out as well. We don't see each other as often as we'd like, even though we live close. We're both busy/forgetful people. But Bern rocks too, and I do love her as much as I love most of my family, who I also don't get around to seeing.
So happy mum's day to all my mum friends on LJ!
