I've just had the very, very best Mothers Day in the whole of the 42 years I've been a Mother. Eldest still isn't talking to me, his problem not mine, I've never been and never will be a conventional person, the fact that he is technically "illegitimate" is truly his problem not mine, I did eventually marry his father which in my eye's legitimised his birth. but not in his eyes, go figure, how many years can you beat up your Mom for not making a hasty decision, forever as far as number 1 son is concerned.
It's now official I'm finally going to be a grandma to another Australian born grand baby number 2 in Australia (I've got 4 grand children only 1 has been born here and has Australian citizenship), he or she will suffer grandma going overboard, but I'm hoping it's a she.
Now back to best Mother's day ever, spent the day just being a daughter with my Mom, we had a relaxed lunch not having to do any chores, sat back and talked, the "builder" organized lunch and treated both of us like Princesses, he really is worth his weight in gold. Then home where the "builder" cooked dinner for Number 2, Number 3 son and his wife, grand baby number 4, cleaned up and put the bins out.
