Having a quiet Mother's Day so far. Skyped with my daughter Becky - great to see and talk to her. She had been out to Brentford Market wearing a T Shirt!. Weather is lovely down there. The temp on her balcony was warmer than the temp in my house.

I'm off out this evening. Been invited to have a meal with Neil, his girlfriend R and her parents who are over from Northern Ireland for the weekend. This will be the first time I have met them. We will be eating in an Italian restaurant near the quayside in Newcastle.

Today's Forum Challenge word is stillicide meaning water falling in drops, especially in a row from the eaves of a roof, a continual dripping. Well its wet and foggy outdoors today but the rain has stopped so there is no continuous dripping from the eaves of the house. So I have blipped some rain drops on a shrub just outside my patio door - think its a variety of Euonymus.

Happy Mother's Day to all you Mam's out there and to those whose Mam's are no longer with us.

“ Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes, by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, comrades and friends—but only one mother in the whole world. ”
