ADVICE FOR MOTHERS DAY

I think I might be one of the oldest mothers on here, so that qualifies me to give advice!!

To all of you out there panicking what to get for Mothers day, I have some suggestions:-

No flowers . Makes me feel bad that you have been ripped off paying more just because of the date. The nice thing about flowers is being spontaneous, buy me some in a few weeks and surprise me.

Chocolates. At the age of 52, I still have to be careful about what I eat. Chocolates are a neccesity when I am fed up or stressed. On a nice calm Sunday, I don't NEED chocolate....and anyway, I feel obliged to offer them all round and I would be lucky to get one.

Ornaments or pottery objects will go to the Oxfam shop after a year. I am only sentimental about people or places, not objects. Sorry it sounds ungrateful but I seem to have brought you up the same way because you have thankfully never bought me any.

What I would like.....is your time. At various times I have 1-4 teenagers with me who I know are so clever with gadgets. The digital TV's, Humax box digital camera, my mobile etc all need to be retuned and/or synchronised. I know I can do it but it would take me hours and a lot of stress but just take you minutes.....and you keep promising but your lives are just so busy. All the old damaged photgraphs you all said could be scanned and improved are still sitting there in the pile.

One of you did set up a facebook page for me when I was 50. (as a joke, you never thought I would use it). Best thing you ever did because even though I might only go on it once a week, it is has been wonderful to catch up with lots of old friends I hardly see because of the miles and years that have gone between us, I have to say now it was my best ever present.

I would love an hour of your time and your wisdom. Some of you are too far away and I miss you like mad, even though we only ever seem to argue when we are together. So much can be done online now but I am just not clever enough to figure it all out. I am not upset that I don't have a card from you. Just so long as I am more than a passing thought tomorrow, as I will be thinking of you all....just like we mothers do every single day, no matter how busy we are

Brilliant and well thought out. I got a card from my lovely son this morning and I was over the moon. To all the mummies out there, have a lovely Mother's Day tomorrow. :):)

My 2 sons 23 and 20 are cooking me dinner at their house. I'm so looking forward to it.

Mums should try to do something 'different' to the normal routine, no matter how small.

Enjoy

Iglimpse you are just a young thing compared to me. I agree with all you said - just a phone call is all I need not even a card unless it is homemade by the grandchildren.

I have one of those mothers who treats me like a child(in a nice way) and asks if I am washing every day and changing my underwear and calling me her little baby(I am 27) and whenever I buy her a present even if its like £10 for birthday, christmas or Mothers Day she tells me I shouldnt buy her something expensive and just to get something from the pound shop lol.

Wow! I am now volunteering to be your favourite aunty.:-D

TBH, we don't go much on Mothers Day or any other of the 'Days' ( Fathers Day - too recent an invention!!) or even birthdays here but we do like to get bits and pieces for each other, bring flowers when visiting - just from the petrol station , nothing pricey - and keep in touch.
Best words in the world - 'Love You' and worth a million pressies ( well a few anyway:oops:).
