Happy mother’s day to the coolest lady I know. Thank you for:
- Bolstering me against the millions of conflicting images of how a young woman is ‘supposed to be’.
- Helping me realise that self-confidence is not a vice.
- Pointing me in the direction of exercise but letting me find my own way there.
- A fantastic relationship with food.
- Being the best role model for brainy beauty in the entire world.
- Taking such good care of my kittens.
- Always being on the other end of the phone, for hours of blather at a time.
- Still letting me sit on your lap when I need to, despite having been much bigger than you are for half my life now.
The list is far from exhaustive! I can’t think of anyone I’d rather share a life and a blog with. Thank you for everything, mama.
