You Know You’re Your Mother When…
by Rachel Ragg
The marvellously wonderful Anna Tims (Adventures of a Middle-Aged Matron) has alerted me to this week’s listography at Katetakes5. The topic is ’Five reasons I know I’m a… [mother/bag lady/prevaricator - you choose!]‘. Sadly, there is only one thing I know I am for sure – and that is my own mother.
So – you know you’ve turned into your mother when:
You start quoting the Daily Mail as the source of all wisdom.
You tell your children that life is grim, life is earnest – just to annoy them.
You start watching programmes about gardening and antiques.
You iron your tea-towels.
You start growing sprouts for Christmas dinner.
