Ok so we have heard about what your dh/dc have done for you today but what have YOU done for your Mum on this Mothers day?

I texted mine.. thankfully my sister has invited her over for dinner so my work here is done :D

My mum also died over 20 years ago. I have missed and loved her today as I have every day since she died. She was just the best, if I can be half the mother she was my DC will be ok smile

It's lovely to read of the mums being loved and cherished on here and for those who have newly (and not so newly) lost theirs I hope today hasn't been too hard thanks

My mum came over for lunch. We had raclette (no cooking involved!) and I bought her a spa day (joint with my brother). My daughters bought her some flowers.

I took my nan some flowers and a card when I went to see her this morning.

Norma, so sorry. Cruel disease, have visited the page.

I had a lovely portrait taken of my children and gave it to her in a frame together with some flowers and chocs. Believe me it was not an easy task, DS is almost 17 and did not want his photograph taken but in the end I even managed to get him to put a nice shirt on and smile for the camera

I got her a les miserables necklace.
dc got her a cake pop, and a mothers day bag with a candle and heart chocolates.

WeAreSix Sun 10-Mar-13 18:57:09

I've rung her, sent her a card and had flowers delivered today. MIL has had a card and a naice potted plant arrangement thingy.

WeAreSix Sun 10-Mar-13 19:00:49

Of course, flowers to those without their mums. None of mine or DH's grandmothers are alive now & both our DMs have missed them terribly today.

I've got friends without their mums too. I feel awful for them and try not to be OTT about Mother's Day to try and spare their feelings.

I gave her a cookbook and some chocolates and a card, bought some flowers on Friday when I saw her and cooked and washed up on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Next time I travel I am buying her some bb cream that she likes, but she is VERY special.

BeaWheesht Sun 10-Mar-13 19:13:36

Visited her last weekend and took her and dad out for lunch. Have her a plant pot with lavender and some chocolates.

DM is 85 and travelled down from Ne to SW on a train for a week so i am thrilled to have her here for the first time in two years. we have had a lazy day with DH parents here too and now watching crufts! she is happy and I am smile

I made my mum & mother in law a piece of art each that was heart in a huge white frame but if you looked really closely the heart was made up of all the children's names, grandchildrens names, places we've even on holiday, Soecial memories.

My mum is an interior decorator and devoted to her house so it was a massive risk to give her something like that but fortunately she loved it smile

And she got Argo and some flowers from my DD ;)

Chippychop Sun 10-Mar-13 19:43:11

Lovely to read most of these. I sent mine a box with a hand written letter, homemade scones, magazine subscription, and Chocs that have "I love mum" on. I also called her. She lives 250 miles away but we are meeting Half way on Easter Sunday

curiousgeorgie Sun 10-Mar-13 19:43:14

Spellcheck!! Sorry...

SamraLee Sun 10-Mar-13 19:53:26

My Mother in Law got loads of homemade food for her freezer and we also brought her a bouquet of flowers and cards. My mother did not get anything as she is American/lives in America and Mother's Day is celebrated in May.

I couldn't afford to go to her so she came here for a cuppa and I gave her a bunch of flowers (lidl roses that I forgot to take the price off blush)

She got me chocolates as she knew dp wouldn't have been able to pick me up anything from the kids smile

Soditall Sun 10-Mar-13 20:08:46

I bought my Mum a bunch of flowers,some chocolates,2 pot plants,a necklace,a handbag,a silk scarf,a mothers day picture frame,and a cardigan.Also bought her two cards one from me and my husband and one from the children.
We all went and saw her this afternoon and she got lots of kisses and cuddles of everyone.

BlahBlahBlahhh Sun 10-Mar-13 20:22:04

Took my mum and Nan out for afternoon tea yesterday...very posh ! Was in London on Friday so popped into Selfridges and bought MIL posh tea and buisuits. thanks to all those missing their mums x

mrsmalcolmreynolds Sun 10-Mar-13 20:30:52

Nothing. Mine actively dislikes MD (history to do with emotional abuse connected to it by her own "D"M). I will be chatting to her on the phone later though which we do every weekend for a good hour or so.

TheFallenMadonna Sun 10-Mar-13 20:34:31

Sent flowers to arrive Friday, as she's off on holiday tomorrow and having them delivered today would have been a bit of a waste...

bringonyourwreckingball Sun 10-Mar-13 20:36:35

I bought my mum flowers. We don't really 'do' Mother's Day in our family (her choice) but she's been so fab lately I couldn't let it pass without something.

redwellybluewelly Sun 10-Mar-13 21:12:00

My mother - nothing
My MIL - day with various family members and our DC yesterday and even managed to rustle up lunch between us

NotInTheMood Sun 10-Mar-13 21:30:00

A few of my friends have lost their mums recently which made me realise I need to appreciate my mum a lot more as she does an awful lot for me. I brought her a big bunch of flowers and chocolates and invited her around for afternoon tea with lots of homemade cooking.

catgirl1976 Sun 10-Mar-13 21:31:45

A big bunch of gorgeous flowers (not a crysanthamum in sight)

Me and DS baked and iced cookies and put them in a lovely box with tissue paper and DS got her (sort of, he is only 15 months) a "Grandma" mug so she can have a cup of tea and a cookie from him.

I called her this afternoon and DC's told her their news too.
I think card will arrive tomorrow morning blush - just missed evening post on Friday.
But she's had a nice weekend with my DF, DSis and DN's so hopefully that will do !
