It's Mother's Day! I got all my text messages from Australia yesterday because if they don't do it then, the kids forget on (their) Monday. I also received some beautiful flowers.
My sister has most of our old family photographs so I don't have any of my young mother except a few I took myself. My first camera was a little Kodak Instamatic. Here is the family in 1965 – of course I am behind the lens so I am not in the photo:
This is a photo which was taken by my grandfather and which my mother "coloured". It was taken before my mother & father went on an overseas trip (to visit his mother) and all four kids were given one of mum & dad so we remembered what they looked like! I have had mine on display in a duo-frame since I was given them in 1974.
Here is me as a mummy. The Princess was being held by her father in the photo – but as he is an ex, I have deleted the majority of him!
And here are three generations of mums, Mum, Nan & Me; and the little Princess makes 4 generations of women in that family. My grandmother lived to be 99. This photo was taken about 1992.
I hope all mothers have a wonderful day.
