A great day.

The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. She then began a campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s. Jarvis' holiday was adopted by other countries and it is now celebrated all over the world. In this tradition, each person offers a gift, card, or remembrance toward their mothers, grandmothers, and/ or maternal figure on mother's day.

The second Sunday in May is Mothers day in over 50 countries.

Our Girls are all Mothers and I wanted to photograph them all, but I was busy running round after the babies.

We had a  bonfire and some folk just rested on their laurels (I mean shovels)

My boys chatted,


The little people 'created'

Oliver played the piano

Oscar enjoyed the day but wasn't too keen on my sausage rolls but shared apple pie with Papa.

Miss Jaya enjoyed herself and entered into the conversation.

Oldest Granddaughter Chi is just wonderful with the little ones. Love her.


We ate sausage rolls, pea soup and home made apple pie.
