Mums the Word (Happy Birthday Ma) ♥

Its my beautiful Mummys birthday today (Happy Birthday Mum) so I've dedicated this post to her and mums in general
I feel so lucky to have the nicest, warmest, kindest, cleverest, best, most gorgeous mum in the world!
She is my best friend and has always been there for me, to encourage me and a shoulder to cry on
Love you Mum!
Here's some photos of me ma in the early 70s
I just love old photos, doesn't matter if they are of people I know or not, they just have such charm

Here's my mum with my dad
 (my dad was a drummer in a band called Mindcage in the early 70s, they did covers of Hendrix, Cream, Yardbirds etc and my mum was a huge Beatles, Stones, T-Rex and Reggae fan, so you can see where I get my music taste from! (but that's for another post)).....
my mum and dad were childhood sweethearts, met when they were around 12 at school, engaged by 16, married by 23 and still together now aged 59
(which is very rare these days)
and still very much in love!

This is my all time Favourite photo of my mum from those days, this is with all the girls she worked with in the hairdressers..

(they had a bit of a reunion recently 4 of them met up for coffee, after not seeing each other for 40+ years, as one of the girls now lives in Australia)
My mum fought with Breast Cancer when I was a kid, and I will be forever in awe of her for being so strong and brave,
and forever Thankful that she made it through and is fit and healthy now
heres mummy now.... still as pretty as ever... you wouldn't believe shes 60 next year!

You only get one mum, cherish her! :)
Thanks for reading
