Today is International Women's Day and of course Mother's Day is right around the corner so only rightfully so I want to talk about my Mum and what a wonderful woman she is!
I am my mums only child so growing up all the focus ans attention is on me, this obviously has great perks but also puts alot of pressure on doing my mum proud.
It hasn't always been easy for us, my mum went through alot of tough times like staying with my dad until I was 18 pretty much putting her happiness last just to keep the peace. Although this situation is not ideal I'm glad she stuck it out as now she's married a wonderful man who brings her true happiness!
Being a teenager I was probably/definitely a bit of a nightmare and had my typical teen moments. Then when we moved out of the family home and into our own home we both worked everyday (my mum actually kept 3 jobs just to provide for us) and pressures of two women living can sometimes reach high levels! It wasn't really until I moved to Cardiff that I really could form a relationship with my mum that we can both enjoy.
|I did this for one Mother's Day haha!|
I actually haven't been home since Christmas, which I want to add was SO fun, getting drunk with my mum and singing Christmas songs until Midnight was a great way to spend the festive period. But with this new job and me trying to settle into it it's been hard to get back but in two weeks I have 4 days off in a row so I will be packing Prince up and travelling down to Devon for some home comforts and to do Mother's Day a week late.
So I just want to say a HUGE thankyou to my lovely Mummy for always being my biggest Cheerleader and supporting me in every single thing I do!
