As you would expect I love my mother, shock horror. She is amazing and has been a brilliant mother to me and my brother and sister, but the best thing about my mum is how welcoming she is. Not only has she welcomed my now siblings in law but she treats all of our friends as her own. This has lead to all three of us children being able to have friends over as much as we wanted and hosting some brilliant parties, normally catered by her as well, she is pretty good at that too.
But what I am trying to say is that I love my mum for all the normal reasons but also because she has made my friends feel like family.
