Life | A to Z Challenge | M

M is for Mum

Mum's are brilliant, aren't they? From the moment we're born, they're there for us. I know my mum has always been there for me. I think the main problem mum has with me is that I'm not a whole lot like my sister, meaning I'm not a talker. There's not a lot to say about my life and not many problems I've come across in life either, so I've never really had to go and talk to her about anything, so I don't think she always feels like she's there for me. And I hope she knows that she is.
Probably not looking our best, but here's one of the women in our family out on my sisters Hen Day; my sister, myself and my mum!

I've always felt quite independent, and being the youngest child, the one who's most into socialising, and being a bit adventurous (and sometimes inconsiderate) I haven't always been the best at keeping my mum up to date on what I've been up to; who's house I was staying at, which boy I was now dating, where about's I was. Sometimes my dad would go on Facebook to find status' about the night I'd spent sleeping under a slide after walking 8 miles at night with a friend, then he'd give mum a heads up and my phone would ring. I'd always be calm, cool and collected and explain it was all a hoot and be done with it.

She very rarely goes off on one. She's such a calm mum. Both my mum and my dad left us to find ourselves, and we've all turned out pretty darn well. I spent my early teen years partying and socialising, and my mum told me that she did worry about me, but knew I was sensible, so would always do the sensible thing. Whether I did or not, I don't know.

My mum is brilliant, she misses me a lot when I'm away at university and I'm the only child who's gone quite far away for university (my brother went to a uni down in Cornwall and then commuted for his final year at Plymouth) so it was quite the challenge letting the youngest fly the nest.

But I'll continuously return to the nest for a home cooked meal, a cheeky bit of dirty laundry in my arms, ready for some time with both of my amazing parents!
