Mothers Day

  As Mother's day approaches we have taken time to reflect on the influences that our Mothers have had on us. All the Staff  have been interviewed and here are their responses;   Melissa What I love most about being a mother: My children bring me back to the moment and wake up my imagination: Whether it is finding shapes in clouds, watching a rainbow or chasing butterflies. I love the morning cuddles and good night squeeze tight snuggles and all the surprises like little love notes or hand made presents on my pillow, they are unconditional love!! Matt Favourite thing to do with your mother? "Meeting somewhere random in Australia or the world and enjoying the sights and sounds together - Portugal, Argentina, Peru, Canada Name an impressive moment by your Mother; "Flying to Peru by herself and hiking the Inca trail" How would you describe your Mother in 3 words ? "Worlds best Mum" Favourite story from Childhood, "When we were little, headed  off on a camping trip. After a few hours on the road, I had become disturbed enough to let Mum know that we were definitely being followed by someone (it happened to be our trailer!)"

What are the most Important thing (or things) your Mother taught you ?
"Mum always tried to teach me to have good manners and be polite, I think that was a pretty important lesson and something that I've tried to take on board." What is your favourite activity to do with your mother? "My favourite activity to do with my Mum is to go on road trips together. When I was growing up my Mum always drove me to all my sporting events and we used to spend hours and hours in the car together. We'd chat, eat lollies, listen to music and just enjoy each other's company."
