It’s Mother’s Day in Australia today. I had no mothers to visit but as a mother I have had a day of simple joy. I have had a manicure and pedicure. I have never had a pedicure and I can tell you my feet are so happy! A pleasant day in the sunshine and then a simple meal is coming full of homely tastes and sensations. I have a new french film to watch and a beautiful drawing of a strawberry which was done for me. It just looks so lovely…and one ,pretty red chinese lantern to sit in my kitchen for the day. It’s been lovely. Just so nice.
