A day late but I hope you won’t mind.

Firstly we have a bouquet of flowers for all the mothers out there – three dances with flowers in the name.

That is followed by a set dance I devised for my mother, Caroline Inglis,  a strathspey named ‘Caroline’s Fancy’ danced by the demonstration team.

Then a few definitions from a mother’s vocabulary.

Lastly,  staying on the theme of flowers,  we have two posters created by Mary Bridson for the beginners afternoon tea dance in May 2018.

The Vocabulary of a Mother

Full Name: What you call your child when you’re angry with him.

Grandparents: The people who think your children are wonderful even though they’re sure you’re not raising them right

Whodunit: None of the children who live in your house.

Show Off: A child who is more talented than yours.

Independent: How we want our children to be for as long as they do everything we say.

Puddle: A small body of water that draws other small bodies wearing dry shoes into.

Dumbwaiter: One who asks if the children would care to order a dessert.
