Mother’s Day, Pigeon and Cake

14 Mar

It’s Mother’s Day here in the UK and I send my love to all Mothers out there, especially to those who cannot be with their Mums today for one reason or another. I have posted the following piece before and it deserves to be here again. Thanks, Pip.

A message of love and compassion to all friends out there on Mother’s Day,, those who do not have their own children, to friends who are estranged from their children or their mothers and to friends who have lost treasured members of their family ... may you find unconditional love in unexpected places and a healthy channel for your own nurturing and creativity to help make the world around you a place where you feel cared for and are seen and known for who you are. x x

I felt very cherished today as we started with a special breakfast prepared by the lovely Mr S, I opened cards, enjoyed my flowers  and discovered a very special ginger biscuit from Daughter No 2.  I won’t be eating her!

From The Biscuiteers

It’s been bitterly cold again causing one of our resident pigeons to sit fluffing up on the fence.

There was a very delicious sounding recipe from Tamal Ray in The Guardian’s Feast this weekend,  It is as delicious as it sounded.

Almond and Berry Traybake with a citrus glaze

Seems to me to be a good day to share the online version of my letter to The Guardian on International Women’s Day.

    The pigeon says that if you’re not going to eat the biscuit, she wants it! 😀

    BTW: I watched “Iron Jawed Angels” ~> The dramatized story of Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, leaders of the suffragist women who fought for the passage of the 19th Amendment. They broke from the mainstream women’s rights movement to create a more activist wing, daring to push the boundaries to secure women’s voting rights in 1920.

    Then I read two books about Alice Paul ~> “Mr. President, How Long Must We Wait?” and “A Woman’s Crusade: Alice Paul and the Battle for the Ballot.”

    Happy Mother’s Day!
