Today is Labour Day and thus a public holiday in New Zealand.
And, fifty nine years ago my mother laboured and produced .... me!
And wasn't my Grandfather super proud. As my Uncle reminded me (publicly on Facebook), there was great rejoicing in the clan to have a little girl arrive, after my Grandmother produced six male children!
So today, the HD3QBEM and I are celebrating her cleverness ;-)
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
