Stop the presses, it’s a BIG day here on SoberJulie.com…my Mum actually left a comment on my blog last night!!! Yes folks after 3 years of blogging and having her phone me to tell me what she thinks of the blog posts she’s read…she actually took the step to leave a comment on the internet!!!
Let me put this into perspective for you, my Mum is an amazing lady and very successful in many areas but technology isn’t one of them. This is the woman who took years to get comfy with a TV converter, balked at the idea of a microwave (fearing she’d start a fire) and up until now in her later years chose a pen and sticky notes to remind herself of anything.
Nay to the cellphone, my Mum will carry a quarter! Pish-posh to emailing friends and family in the UK she owns a perfectly good rotary dial phone!!
Because my Mum now reads my blog I have to admit that’s a bit of an exaggeration, my Dad loves technology and would never live with a rotary dial phone these days…
This woman may not be tech-savvy but oh she gets things done. I have no idea how she does it but anytime in my life when I’ve turned to my Mum for help she makes things happen. From doctors appointments, finding the perfect wedding hall, to being by my side during labor I can turn to my Mum.
Making Up for Mom Humour on my Blog
Why am I gushing about my Mum if Mother’s Day has already passed? Possibly to make up for any tongue-in-cheek comments I may have made about her on this blog. I may have referred to her blue sense of humour, her tendency to break into song at any moment or her “In church or in chapel let it rattle” motto for breaking wind….
It’s also possible that my brain is busting with ideas I can now share with you all, examples of the character that is my Mum for future blog fodder.
I know I could easily write a whole post sharing photos of my Mum using my Father’s FB page and writing very strange comments on people’s walls….oh yeah I love reading those!!
Hey Mum, how would you like to do a weekly column here, sharing some of your wacky, inappropriate humour and British wit with the world? (going for Brownie points here)
So yes, today is a big day. My heart leapt in a very good way when I saw my Mum’s email address in my comment cue…something tells me I’m going to be seeing loads of those comments from now on….
