Happy Mothers Day

To all Mums out there, I wish you a Happy Mothers Day.

This is my third Mothers Day with Pickle in my life. Since her arrival I have valued my Mum so much more than I ever did. It seems to take being a mum yourself to truly appreciate what your mum has done for you over the years.

Since I am adopted, my mum didn't get up with me in the night for feeds and nappy changes. She didn't see my first smile or hear my first word. She didn't witness my first steps or take me to school for the first time.

But she loved me when it seemed that no-one else would. She told me that I was important when no-one else cared. She opened her heart and let her love surround me, wrapping me in it's warmth and keeping me safe.

Most people aren't able to choose their mum. It's a lucky dip if you get a good one or not. I was able to choose mine. And I chose good. My mum doesn't even know I have a blog but nevertheless, I will say it here, I love you Mum. Thanks for all that you do, all that you have done, and all that you will do. I couldn't have picked a better mum.

Mother's day in Canada is in May...so I have a little time...The Knitted Gifts books is awesome. I have that and particularly love the chevron Koigu scarf in it.

Hey there

Thankyou :o) for your sympathy. I don't think I ever intended to write that post like it came out. At first I just wanted to say hi and put up some pics and then all that crap came from inside and I thought 'what the hell' and posted it anyway to get rid of it. I feel a little better today. I didn't want to go to the docs because he's a very laid back happy pill prescriber and I didn't want to rely on chemicals. I have been a little depressed over a long period of time and not admitting this has got me to here. I'm not psycho, delusional or in need of restraints LOL but I think I'm at a level where I have had to admit I'm not happy. I suppose I think I have to take care of everyone and their problems as well as my own and I have to be more selfish without hurting my partner. And again.... sorry for the verbal and I hope you feel better as well- why do we dish out advice we never follow ourselves?!

Will be posting SP pics up soon so a little more upbeat blogwise ;o)
