Tonight we will gather to celebrate Mother’s Day. All 8 of us will be home to mark the occasion.

Now you may be thinking that Mother’s Day is actually tomorrow. Well, it is; however it is traditionally the day we visit both of our parents. So recently we decided to meet the Saturday before so that as a family we could celebrate together.

I have to say I like this as it nicely separates the two events and allows us to focus on who matters the most.

Good food will be served. There will be lots of discussion and laughter. And of course, we will play some sort of game – it’s customary.
