Anyway - when I arrived with her on Saturday night she took me to one side and said in a nervous voice..."Mum, please don't be cross with me...but..." and then showed me her foot. She has had a latin inscription tattooed along the bottom edge of her foot - so it's completely covered up as soon as she puts on a pair of shoes.
The latin reads..."Orbis terrarum est expecto". It translates as 'The world is waiting". I actually think that's very cool and inspirational. ...and Yes, she said it did hurt :)
