MAY 22, 1979

On this day, 27 years ago, my young mother gave birth to her second child at the age of 23. The poor dear didn't even have any drugs to dull the unfortunate pain accompanied by most natural births.

My mother is amazing - like a lot of Mums are. But peep this, not only is my Mum one of the best Mums on BOTH sides of the Atlantic; she is also very hip and always classy.

i never really understood birthdays, you know? Sure, it's nice to be appreciated once a year with a cake but really, shouldn't we be eating the cake in honour of our mothers for literally birthing us?! i guess that's what Mother's Day is for.

Thanks, Mum, for having this total bampot of a daughter! i shall raise a Tunnocks Snowball in your honour!
