Mother Love

I am on the point of leaving the house to go to work.

Matty: Do you have a comb or brush with you?

Nelly: I do.

Matty: And have you...?

Nelly: Yes Mother. I have.

Just to remind you all. I am in my mid-fifties. My mother is in her eighties. They never, ever let up on you.

Hahahaha that is so cute

Nelly said...

Oh she's cute in every sense of the word. Because, in Ireland we also use cute when we mean knowing and clever.

I hope you remembered the safety pin....! Well, I am older than you too!

Nelly said...

Ah sure there's a stapler in the office. I forgot my purse and my cheese & onion pie. Head's a marley as we also say who speak Norn Irish.

London sister says "I hope you got some sleep and a good breakfast?"

Nelly said...

Plenty of sleep and just the usual porridge for brekkie. Matty had toast, scrambled eggs and porridge.
