Happy UK Mother's Day - Mothering Sunday

Happy Mothering Sunday to all my UK mummy friends!  And if you're wondering why the UK and other parts of the world celebrate mothers on different days, here's Wikipedia's explanation:
Mothering Sunday is a holiday celebrated by Catholic and Protestant Christians in some parts of Europe. It falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent, exactly three weeks before Easter.  Once observed as a day on which people would visit their "mother" church, it has become an occasion for honouring the mothers of children and giving them presents.  It is increasingly being called Mothers' Day, although that has always been a secular event quite different from the original Mothering Sunday.
