Today would have been my Mums birthday, she was a lovely lady who died sadly of leukaemia many years ago. I was down in RAF Valley in North Wales in these days she never even told me she was ill, yet we spoke every week. She always worried about us all especially me as I was a wild child and then my love of mountains she feared as many Mums do for our safety.
I would loved to have been able to look after her life was hard with 5 kids and limited money. Yet she never complained they were a different generation then. Today I was going to climb a remote Corbett by Loch Rannoch but the weather is not great. Instead I hope to remember Mum if the weather holds climbing with a pal.
So if you can give your Mum a hug from me. My Mum loved flowers as I do so I will get some today, she would love the flowers on the hills just now.
