Me: Happy Mother’s Day!
Mother: Oh thank you darling.
Me: I’m sorry you only got a card this year, I just haven’t had time to do anything – but I’ll make it up for your birthday
Mother: You know all I want is a card. Besides we’ve had a lovely day
Me: What’d you do?
Mother: Well the sun was shining so we were going to drive to Cherry Lane Garden Centre and have a walk around
Mother: But then when we got in the car, it wouldn’t start would it?
Mother: That blinking battery
Mother: But oh well, we couldn’t do that so we decided to trim the hedges.
Mother: And the sun’s been out and then Dave got the mower out and he did that while I…
Me:..trimmed the hedges?
Mother: Yes. That was lovely. And now I’m just sitting here in…
Me: …front of the fire…
Mother: …yes, and watching…
Me: ….Dancing on Ice?
Mother: How’d you know that?
Me: Regular Sunday, Ma.
Mother: Well, no, not really. We don’t always trim the hedges….
