Author's Chapter Notes:
The middle years seemed to have quite a few possible ideas, so I may have a few more in the next update or add a "Middle Years Part B" but thought this was plenty to read at one time. The telegram I think might not be historically accurate for the UK but I hope people get the idea ! The numbers are from this list of codes people used to save money on messages. Gay did I think have a mother still, though she and Mike lived with her brother and his wife, I just could see her sending Ruth a card, and seeing her a bit like a second mother.

The girls here celebrate Mothering Sunday, and we wanted to send you a card. We each did half of the flower paintings on the front, we wonder whether you will be able to tell who did which flowers! We miss you, and hope you are safe.

Love from Flora and Fiona xx

Dear Aunt Phyll,

I have never sent a Mother's Day card, and a year ago I would have never expected to do so. However you've made such a difference to me in this past year, really felt like a mother to me, and when all the other girls in my unit were making cards the idea came to me to send one to you. I hope you won't take it as any slight towards my own mother - it isn't. I just wanted to wish you a Happy Mothering Sunday, and let you know that I am so very very grateful for the home I now have. With all my love, Betty. Xx

Dear Aunt Madge

Happy Mother's (crossed out and replaced with Aunty's) Day

Sybil said I can't send you a mother's day card, so she said I have to change it to Aunty's Day, but I didn't want to redraw my picture, so I'm sorry the inside is a little bit messy. Love you lots, love from Bride xxx

-----

Dear Mummy,

Happy Mother's Day, to my lovely mummy.

With lots of love from your daughter,

Sybil.
