In the UK, today is Mother's Day and this morning I was greeted by a pile of silver wrapped balls, a card and the following letter...
Thank you for bearing us in your womb for nine months, undergoing the agony of childbirth, changing our nappies as well us feeding, clothing and sustaining us for the greater portion of our lives. In return, we present you with Bath Bombs. And a card.

What comedians!!! But making me laugh has always been their best gift. I also rather like the fact that Ben and Sam are slaving over vegetable peelers and a hot stove right now!
Would also like to say a HUGE thank you for all your wonderful messages of support over the last couple of days. It really has been a great comfort and help. I'm trying to reply to each of you but if I don't manage it please know every single comment and email was very much appreciated. Already we are in a good routine with the blood tests and injections and Jacob is being brilliant and taking it all in his stride... and loving the fact that he gets so much to eat!
Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, whether you are a Mum or not, have a wonderful Mother's Day.
