The one where I'm a mum...

So, yesterday was Mothering Sunday in the UK.  I don't have children, well, not actual human children at any rate. However I am mum to two Wee Furry Lumps of Love™ and as such, I suggested to S yesterday that surely I should've gotten a Mother's Day card from them.

Later that afternoon, S and my stepson, K, who's over from Scotland for his spring holidays, decided to take the dogs for a kick-about with a ball down at the park while I got on with some more of my oil painting (the love/hate relationship with oils continues unabated and I spent the weekend painting over all my previous work and basically starting again but that's a story for another day).

When they returned they disappeared upstairs for a while and then they handed me this:

S even managed to find one with two white dogs on it!
K had signed it on behalf of the dogs, who haven't yet mastered writing, due to their lack of opposable thumbs.

I also got this:

My beautiful fur babies!!

I don't even care if people think I'm weird - it's on display in our kitchen as it matches the colour scheme!!

I once heard a quote by an unknown person who said 'Children are for people who can't have dogs!' which seems quite apt for me in the circumstances!!

Belated Happy Mother's day to mum's of ALL species!!

  4. I don't think you are weird either! You should see me fuss about my feline baby, probably more so than I ever fussed about my human one. Anyway, Happy Mother's day to you!

  6. I love this! Hubby and I receive cards from our fur-babies every holiday. And yes, we deserve the Mothers Day cards too! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm having fun exploring yours.
