Every Friday I take my MIL shopping. Today I had an overwhelming feeling of grief for my own mum. What I would do to be able to take her shopping, she loved it.
Not so long ago I wrote about mum here and as I re-read the post a few minutes ago I couldn't really alter anything about it.....I miss my mum and always will. Yet I feel her presence around me - certainly I do not have to look far without seeing an object or reminder of mum.
Today I will take Mavis to the library where an old college friend of mine works. We always have a laugh when we talk about days gone by - carefree days of 16 year olds travelling to college on a bus. I must tell you about some of our adventures one time.......there are quite a few over the 2 year period.
After the library is the supermarket experience. No doubt I will bump into people I have known for years and yes we will share laughs again......part and parcel of surrounding oneself with people of the same disposition eh?
Once the shopping is packed into the car we will have a spot of lunch. A new cafe has opened in Guisborough and I hear they do a good soup.....off to try.
Sunday - Mother's Day itself and the family are here for lunch.
We have a new Marks & Spencer's food outlet here and I am absolutely bowled over by the quality and variety of what they have to offer.....
so the menu looks like this....
Roast Potatoes & Parsnips ala mrs nesbitt's faffing about
Mashed Potato (Adored and worshipped by nephews)
Sprouts, Brocolli & Spring Greens
Peach Melba gateaux provided by SIL!
Should be a good one!
We will be raising a glass to mum too.
Enjoy the weekend - here's to mum's everywhere.
By the way - received £10 discount from M&S due to a technical hitch when ordering! Good one eh?
