I'm not only seeing my mother in the mirror - I'm turning into her.
My mother was a very talented dressmaker and tailoress and made all my "best" clothes. When I was a student I bought a pattern and enough fabric for her to make me a winter coat. The first thing she said was "What do you want that for? It's very old-fashioned (it wasn't in 1970!) I had one just like that when I was your age" (which would have been in 1941). I swore then and there that if I ever had children I would never
say anything like that.
We move on another 30 years and god daughter comes for lunch wearing - guess what? A coat identical in all but colour to the afore-mentioned one. I swear I was not in control of my mouth because it announced "I like your coat. I had one just like it when I was you age
" I knew what I was saying but I just couldn't stop myself! History repeats! I was mortified!
That was when I knew I was turning into my mother.
