A Working Mum No More

It's the end of an era.

It doesn't feel right.

No longer a working mum.

Not me!!


My Mum

This week my mum retired.

She is no longer a working mum.

She can sit back and enjoy her retirement.

Or, knowing my mum, buzz around like a busy bee doing lots of other stuff instead.

(Hmm, so that's where I get it from!)

Tonight we're going out for a family meal to celebrate and instead of a cake, I've made some cupcakes for the occasion.

Now, what kind of cupcakes do you make for a retiring working mum?

Shoes and handbags, of course!

My Mum retired last year at the age of 67. Now she's busier than ever with the National Trust, U3A, Theatre Group etc etc!

I think they would do nicely!
Hope she spends many years of happiness in retirement.

Wow you are a talent with the cupcake designs. I love them, so classy. Just had a great time reading back on past posts. Well done on the brilliant weight loss, truly impressive.

Loved your Christmas post on making sure your MIL got away. I have similar problems here too!

Hope your mum has the time of her life in retirement.

Good luck to your Mum! I'm sure that before long she'll wonder how she ever had time to work. And I love the cupcakes - how cute!

Ooh, I have cupcake envy. Don't tell me you made them? Is there anything this woman can't do? Anyway, congrats to mum. If she's anything like mine she'll be volunteering by the end of next week!
