I remember when I was about nine entering my mum for a 'Mum Of The Year' competition. In my entry I talked about how she was the best Mum ever. My reasons for this were that she'd bought me a telly, a Sega Megadrive and a hamster. In retrospect, they feel like pretty flimsy reasons but hey, it won us a holiday to Dorset!
Obviously a lot has changed since then. I guess I've been through a lot over the past five years and it's just made me appreciate my mum so much more.
So I just wanted to say thank you. For holding my feet when I'm cold, and holding me when I'm sad. For always making me laugh, even when I wouldn't think it possible. For being a shining example of strength, kindness and humility. For making me know that you really are always there for me.
So thank you Mum. You absolute hoot!
