Happy Mother's Day...



Just a quick note on here to wish my mum a good Mother's Day...yes, I pulled off a characteristic bumble on the card 'detail'. So here is a picture of her holding a huge bundle of sticks on the spot where her living room will (eventually) be.

A quick appreciative anecdote. When I was seven and had just started playing football at school, I used to play in plimsolls. I think schools were a lot more laissez-faire about forcing parents to shell out hundreds of quid on ludicrously specialized items of sports equipment in those days. Anyway, the second time I played, I scored a goal. I told mum this when she picked me up from school and, apropos of nothing, drove me straight into town to buy a pair of boots from Woolies. That was a good day.

So, thanks for the football boots, and for all the other stuff. I did contemplate putting one of your jokes up on here but I couldn't remember any of them...
