Happy Mother's Day


"All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his."
~Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest, 1895

Happy Mother's Day, Mum

love & kisses

I've always loved that witticism.

If I were more like my mother, I would be a better cook, and yet paradoxically thinner, more organized, and more likely to be on time!

Happy Mother's Day Hazel. Oscar Wilde was never a favourite of mine. I prefer Noel Coward!
