Mother's Day



Today is Mother's Day in the UK and, hey, when in Rome do as Romans do: even though in Portugal Mother's Day isn't until the first Sunday in May, we are celebrating it today and I'm positively being pampered to death: breakfast in bed, flowers, a book and a CD. And the kitchen was decreed a no-go zone for me today. Hurray !!! We're going out to our local for lunch in a little while (our biological clocks still haven't adjusted to the newly arrived summer time).
A very Happy Mother's Day to my Mami, who gets to receive Mother's Day Greetings twice a year ! Not bad, uh?
Playing on the iPod is one of my favorite Elvis songs that's on the CD my lovely daughters presented me with today: "You were always on my mind".

ALWAYS ON MY MIND (Elvis Presley)

Maybe I didn't love you quite as good as I should have,
Maybe I didn't hold you quite as often as I could have,
Little things I should have said and done,
I just never took the time.

You were always on my mind,
You were always on my mind.

Maybe I didn't hold you all those lonely, lonely times,
And I guess I never told you, I'm so happy that you're mine,
If I made you feel second best,
I'm sorry, I was blind.

You were always on my mind,
You were always on my mind,

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died,
Give me, give me one more chance to keep you satisfied,
If I made you feel second best,
I'm sorry, I was blind.

You were always on my mind,
You were always on my mind.
