Mother's Day duty in the south
It doesn't matter how old your mother is or how old you are, she is still your mother and you are still the child when Mother's Day comes round. So we have done our duty and been down south to see both of our mothers. Despite the miserable weather we drove down to Weybridge in record time and were rewarded with a tramp around Weybridge in the rain. Then it was off to see my mother-in-law to try to sort out a problem with the purchase of the retirement flat that she is buying. Saturday dawned bright and sunny and we were off to Sussex to see my mother. She too, should be thinking about moving but won't. We went out for a meal with her. I had to cut up both her starter and her main course as if I were the mother and she were the child. Looking at our mothers getting old is no fun, but my mother at least is blissfully unaware of what is going on. By Sunday our duty was done. Our reward was a walk around Wisley before we set off back to Chester.
