It’s a problem worthy of United Nations arbitration so it probably shouldn’t be surprising that we honour both today with their own day, the United Nations Day and Mothers-in-Law Day.
With those esteemed institutions being deemed worthy of their own official day.
Now I wouldn’t for one minute begrudge Angela her day off today as she IS heading into Halloween, obviously her busiest time of the year.
In truth, I’ve always tried to keep a couple of steps ahead of Mother-in-Law, or Sir as she insists I call her.
The outlaw Angie
And so we’d find ourselves living away from Chez Angela.
So she has needed to be a visitor to our billets on our adventures around these islands.
And that has allowed us the opportunity to show off the charms of some of our favourite places on these islands.
An inveterate traveller herself, she decamped to Australia with the family in her 20s.
And embarked on a round-the-world boat trip back to England.
But she has also benefited from old Casey Jones (that’s the Father-in-Law).
One unexplored world and one I know she has long hoped to visit is the New World, the USA.
And it is my hope that we can get her out there to New York with her daughter, my very own Scary One.
And I know that she has got her own broom!
Have a Great Day Angela on this United Nations Day and Mothers-in-Law Day.
