She's full of old world charm, blushes at the slightest thing, and is a real lady....so naive that we have to explain 'naughty' jokes to her!

She's a straight shooter, always calling a spade a spade. So you always know where you stand with her, like it or not! So many memorable moments surround my dear Mother.

I will always remember all the help my mum gave me in growing up- she used to always type my assignments for me (I used to hand write them), drive me around so that I could have a job as a Homecare Catalogue distributor, and when my marriage broke down and I needed to make the drive from NSW to QLD to live with them she was on a plane that afternoon to be in the car with me as I drove, no questions asked.

My mum is a rock. She cared for my sister when she was sick with leukaemia for several years and even now, 5 years after my sister's death, she is still so strong. She doesn't think she is but she is the strongest, most caring person I know and I couldn't be without her wub.gif

She is always there for us no matter what we do.  She lets us make our own mistakes and never says 'I told you so'.  We always have a shoulder to cry/lean on any time of the day or night.

She is a whirlwind of bad jokes, skeptical eyebrow raises and amazing advise. It takes just a cup of coffee and conversation to fix everything.

Because she has the most amazing attitude to life. Life isn't always a party, but whatever, wherever, she always take the party with her.
