My mum has turned 49 today. We did not have the best relationship when I was younger, but now that I am older (!) and wiser (?) I appreciate everything that she has done for me. I know she was hard on me because she genuinely cared and loved me.
To you, Mum... I may not be the best daughter but you are definitely the best mum for my difficult shitty self :p
Many happy returns and luvs ya! >kiss, kiss<
