To my mum

It's Mother's Day already in Australia, because they're a day ahead on that side of the world. So this is my "early" Happy Mother's Day to my mum, who truly is as kind and warm and capable and clever and selfless as they come (with a neat wicked streak, which I consider absolutely essential to Not Being Boring).

I only hope I can give my kids the kind of complete and unconditional love that she showed all of us.

We really are lucky.

{The photo above was taken at the beach with Nanna and Pa when Mum was pregnant with me (although you wouldn't know it); the family portrait at top was taken before it had occurred to my parents to add three boys to the family. I'm the toddler; the baby is Kath.}
