Mad Mother!

My mother appeared out of the blue yesterday. She whirl winded in as always, muttering something about parcels and corners and careful driving. When I deciphered her drift, it turned out that she had loaded the car up with things to deliver, including some wrapped up parcels, which she placed on the roof of the car while she was loading up the back. She left home and drove some distance before stopping at some traffic lights. As she was waiting for the lights to change, a man walked over to her car and retrieved the parcels from the roof, handing them to her through the car window. "He didn't seem to think it was funny" She laughed whilst telling me. "Probably thought you were completely barking"I retorted! Well, you have to speak as you find don't you!! However it does go to prove that she doesn't drive quite as dangerously as I thought she did, having negotiated several corners without leaving her treasure in the gutter!

I wonder if mothers pass on to daughters a capacity for hurtling down streets at high speed?

BS5, what are you suggesting? ;)

Maggie , glad you like the snow :)

Akelamalu, indeed she must have passed on her genes (for CAREFUL DRIVING, BS5)to me don't you think?!!

Hi Saz, indeed but we are mothers too.

Brett, I am assuming you mean my careful driving skills!

Mean Mom, it's not the first time she's done it either, she must have several guardian angels :)
