My card for this week is a card my best friend asked me to make for her Mams birthday. Now for those of you who don't know, here in the north east of England we don't go for this Mummsy thing we have our good old MAMs!
Whenever I have a reason to think about the Mam/Mum thing it reminds me of when my eldest son Matthew was away at university in Norwich and makes me laugh. For some reason he decided he would go to about the furthest place possible away from home, we didn't see much of him for the 3 years he was at university but he was a good boy and rang home regularly and that's where the funny story comes in.
In our family we don't have a very strong Geordie accent but to a southerner - that is anyone south of Newcastle we just don't talk proper!! Matthew used to ring home each week and he'd always tell his housemates he was off to ring "me Mam" - that's Geordie for" my Mummy!" He'd been away for quite a while, ringing home regularly when one of his housemates asked him - "Who's this Meemam person you keep ringing all the time?" Matthew was just creased up laughing when he told us -maybe its the northern humour I don't know -but it still makes us laugh now.
