When I was about 4 I got up and sat by the fire to heat up and my mum opened the door with my younger siblings round about her legs. When she saw me sitting there her face broke into the biggest most beautiful smile I have ever seen. I will never forget the feeling of my mums love washing over me. My most precious memory. x

I didn't get along very well with my mother. We were just too similar and we butted heads...a lot.

However, I do remember in primary school I was punished for something. I didn't do it. I was near a group of trouble makers. The unjustness broke my heart. My beloved teacher wouldn't listen and my essay got longer and longer.

I remember sitting on the sofa at home and crying. My mum sat and listened and listened. For once, I had her attention and her support. It mattered, and I remembered it.

My best memory has to be my mum's well known talent as an bird whisperer! She used to live in a Bungalow in her later years and the window of the kitchen was facing the side of her neighbours, which was give or take about a metre away. Every time me and my daughter would visit and be in the kitchen, you'd all of a sudden hear this chirping from outside, look out the window, and it ALWAYS used to be a blackbird. There were quite a few of them that visited, and took advantage of my mum's good nature, ahaha! They would perch themselves on the neighbours gutter singing for her, to which she had her little conversations consisting of 'hi birdy!' and 'wait there while I get you some food!' with them. And the blackbirds always waited for her to get the food, chirping along, and often stood right next to her when she put it out on the ground. When she'd do her gardening too the blackbirds always perched on the fence and she'd make her (rather terrible) bird calls. Definitely me and my daughter's best memory, so much so that when she passed away we had a blackbird painted in the memorial book where her funeral was held next to her name. Everyone knew her for that, and it just represents her so perfectly! #Mumories

The morning I called my mum to let her know she had become a Granny was so special. Her first Grandchild had been born at 5.30 am and I,had to wait until 9 to tell her! I will never forget how happy it had made her.

Six oclock every evening, I would ring my mum, we would talk about our day, at the end of our conversation, we would both say I Love You , speak tomorrow..... I still everyday at Six oclock I tell my mum how much I love her even though she died over 20 years ago.

The best memory of my mum is not only of her, but her sister too, who sadly lost her life nearly 14 years ago now. They used to get on so well, and it was fantastic to see, but the memory I hold closest to my heart is when they used to bundle all us kids in one car (5 of us! haha) as well as the both of them, and decide that we were going to the seaside for the day. This is the only time I have really seen her genuinely smile, and generally happy since her sister died. I would love to be able to surprise her with a little gift, in the hope that she will smile :)

My favourite memory is from a Christmas dinner. We had some crackers with wind up reindeers in them to race against each other. It was all getting rather competitive, when suddenly, the chair my mum was sat on, bouncing up & down to cheer on her reindeer, shot across the room, (it was an office chair on wheels) & she fell on the floor with a thud! There was a deathly silence till she roared with laughter & then we all fell on the floor in fits of laughter ourselves! #MUMORIES

My most memorable and favourite memory of my beautiful Mum is when I had just had my first baby Son (her first Grandchild) and I can see her running in to the hospital ward to meet him for the first time. The expression on her face I will treasure forever it was just so special and emotional. I have just lost my Mum and her funeral was yesterday so I will be trying to pull of so many lovely memories of her to get me through. #mumories

#MUMORIES My Mum's always making me laugh with her funny comments, one which always makes me smile is when she came to visit me when I had a stray cat visiting my garden for a feed. She'd never seen him before & as he walked away from her she said 'Oh my goodness Liz, he's got terrible haemhorroids' I laughed & said 'No Mum, he just hasn't been neutered'. We always laugh about it still

My favourite memory of my mother was of one christmas eve in the early 1980's when she unwrapped the christmas turkey the milkman had delivered (lots of people ordered their turkey off the milkman in those days)! when she unwrapped it, it had 1 leg and 3 wings - she already had a few martini's and she rang up the milkman to complain and got through to his answerphone - it was hillarious the message she left about who eats turkey wings anyway and how she had one leg when 2 people in the family usually had the turkey leg on their plate!

I have one enduring and lovely memory of my mother.. A single mum in the sixties, which was never easy. Each Christmas Eve the TV would go off. The church carols would go on. The tree would be decorated, candles lit and holly gathered would be placed above pictures. Food prepared for the following day, presents wrapped. A cup of coco and together we would watch the carol singers pass by.

I was bullied from the age of 5 because I had olive, tanned skin. This carried on throughout high school & often older boys would pick on me. I was terrified. Bullying was not taken seriously back then (not at my school anyway). However, just after I began primary school I was racially abused by another child (incorrectly) and asked my mum what the word meant; she told me it meant 'princess'. It was only as I got older that I understood & how she tried to protect me & was obviously hurt for her child too.

My favourite memory of my Mum was when I was about seven. She was dropping my sisters and I to school in our old banger of a car. It was rush hour and as we approached a very busy crossroads, the car conked out. People were beeping thier horns. My beautiful Mum got out of the car (I need to add that she was wearing a long pink silk nightie, matching dressing gown and welly boots). Suddenly, the horns stopped beeping- I think people were stunned. She popped the bonnet open, messy blond bed head bun blowing in the wind, fiddled with the spark plugs, closed the bonnet and got back into the car. She turned the key and the car started again. I remember thinking how awesome she was. X x x

When I first started secondary school the jump up fromthe 'little' school which was just around the corner from my house to the much bigger bustling building a bus ride away was so daunting to me it filled me with so much dread. On my first morning my mum gave me a hankerchief that she had sprayed with her perfume and told me if ever I got too nervous, to take it out of my bag and smell it to remind me that she was always close by and thinking about me. It acted as a real comfort and I still use the same trick to this day and passed it on to my little ones.

In the 1960s, my mum's dressing table was such an exciting place to play. She had perfume, a jewellery box, glass trinkets, china pill boxes and a huge powder puff! Her perfume was Elizabeth Arden Blue Grass. When I visualise the dressing table, that distinct Blue Grass scent comes right back to me! My dressing table is pretty similar now, but sadly no powder puff and I have several perfumes to choose from!

My mum was furious because after confronting the parents it continued and no one would do anything about it, so my mum confronted the bully herself. He ran off and my mum gave chase all around the town, it was so comical. This big 18 year old bully who thought he was a tough guy running away from my 5 foot 2 inch mum whilst his friends looked on in laughter - needless to say he never bothered my brother again and in that moment she became my hero!

After I had my daughter we were both unwell and spent 10 days in hospital. I was in pain and really wanted a bath, not a shower. My Mum, who came by bus every single day to spend the day with me took one look at the bathroom and told me to wait. The next day she arrived with cleaning products and scrubbed the bathroom to within an inch of its life! She also brought salt to add to the bathwater which really helped with the pain. I'll never forget it!

#MUMORIES I can only have been about 5 or 6 years old. For a fancy dress party she made me an outfit - a box of Dairylea Cheese Triangles (a full circular box, not just one little triangle), barely able to move, just head and ankles sticking out.

It was the school formal and I was really excited. I went window shopping with my friends and found the dress of my dreams. It was very expensive but I imagined myself wearing it. Still, deep down, I knew it was way more than mum could afford. But she went out and bought me the dress for me anyway. Mum didn't tell me until a long time afterwards but she used some money she'd been saving for a new outfit for her friend's wedding to buy my dress because she wanted my formal to be special. When I turned up in my perfect dress, I felt like a princess,....thanks to my mum.

#MUMORIES We used to get the bus to my primary school and every morning I longingly looked in the toy shop window when I got off the bus - the doll of my dreams was in the window. One morning it had gone and I was so disappointed. I knew it was very expensive and my mum said someone else must have been very lucky and would be getting it for Christmas. I was so thrilled on Christmas morning when I opened the doll. My mum is amazing - years later when I was in my 20's I asked how had she afforded the doll and she said she'd asked the shop to put it away and each week when she got paid she'd gone and put a little bit more money towards it. She always, always bought for me and my sister before herself and now she does the same for my daughter.

When I was about 7 I remember it was just before Christmas and when i got home from school my mum told me that she was walking past the greengrocers and found out by looking at a sign on the window that she had won a hamper from the raffle ticket she had just bought the week before

My mum loves animals and would always save ones that were injured.
When I was about 14 we were driving through the village we lived in and there was a tiny bird being attacked by a group of bigger birds.
I remember my mum jumping across a ditch into the field and then losing her shoes in the mud as she trekked into the middle of the field to save the little bird!
She didn't care that she was almost knee deep in mud or that she had ruined her shoes, she just wanted to help the bird.
She took it to a wildlife/nature reserve where the bird was treated for injuries and shock and then released.

Definitely on my wedding day, she was the calming influence I needed (and my dad almost had to make the dressmaker finish the dress! but I did not know that till much later).

Mother loved walking the dog, and they went out in all weathers. I always remember the children and I walking with her, and the children asking her to slow down as she walked too quickly!

#MUMORIES I love my mom's wonderful smile and the way her eyes crinkle and her whole face light's up. It makes you want to do nice things just so that she will smile.

My favourite #MUMORIES are of school summer holidays, mum couldn't drive, so she'd walk us through the local woods across the road and up a winding country road until she found a spot where she used to picnic as a child. When we arrived she'd unpack a picnic basket full of delicious foods she'd baked that morning. It would have taken 10 minutes by car and it tired our legs walking all that time, but is a precious memory.

On holiday in Spain my was swimming in the sea. When she came out I realised she didn't have her bikini top on as it had come off without her realising. She was so embarrassed and we were both laughing so hard we didn't notice the bikini top floating away. We never saw it again but it was just so funny. It still makes me giggle when ever I think about it.

One of my favourite #MUMORIES is the day Mum pretended to be a man on the phone... yeup really.She was phoning up a company but account was in Dad's name, they said they'd only speak to him. Dad didn't have a clue what was going on so Mum phoned back in her "man voice" and pretended to be him to get the problem resolved. The person at the other end of the phone said "I'm sorry but I don't believe you are a man" and hung up. Needless to say I laughed, a lot! It's a random memory but it always makes me smile!
