The old girl who started it allMatty has Leitrim Sister staying with her this weekend and, happily, this sister is a talented cook, who positively relishes making great food for squads of people.
So we've got a small clan gathering this afternoon - just the nine of us. More to tell later on.
Of course Mother's Day is not just for mothers - it's also about children, without whom Mother's Day would not be possible. I'll be seeing two of my girls today but I'll be thinking about my other girl, the newly-engaged Katy from Norfolk.
Big hugs and kisses for Katy. (Did I mention she is Engaged? To Be Married? To Mark?)
