From her curly mullet to terrible fashion my Mum's not hard to forget, but most memorable is her kindness and helpfulness to everyone she's met.

My mum is memorable because she is always prepared to help out- when I was in school she used to drive me around after work so that I could deliver Home Care catalogues and earn some money, even though she was tired after a long day.
