I was really excited about The Gallery challenge this week, as I talk about my family here but haven’t really shown off my wonderful mum as yet.

So, here come the girls!

My mum aged 18.

My mum with her mum in 1972.

My mum is pretty special and as I grow up I find that each day I’ve adopted another of her values or traits. Whether it’s recycling absolutely everything or home cooking from the growing collection of recipes books. We both like to shop and hide our purchases from our husbands.  We both enjoy a glass of red wine. Like her, I am becoming a terrible hoarder.

My mum has brought me up to be creative, passionate, hard working and honest. In turn I will do that for my children.

Thanks mum.
