Happy Mother's Day!
Of course, it's not Mother's Day in England. The British celebration falls in March which is always a tad tricky for me to send a card from here in Los Angeles since Mother's Day cards aren't on the shelves (note to self: buy card for next year). As a child, my sister and I would make breakfast for our mum - it was always tea and toast and was heavily supervised by Dad. We would carry it upstairs on a tray with a daffodil in a vase and a handmade card. Mum would sit up in bed and pretend to be surprised. She also didn't drink tea but we would watch her sip it (suppressing a grimace) saying, "delicious, darlings." The whole day we would wait on her hand and foot. They were special times.
