I have order her some pearl earrings that had 84% off on Groupon. She is on holiday so hoping they arrive in time for her getting back. I have also helped my 2yr olf DD make her a hand made card with her handprint as a flower. I know for a fact my mum will be more happy with the card than the earrings. :-\
Spent a couple of hours with my wonderful mum, we can't take her out at the mo so we brought cake to go with coffee. She is nursing her mother who is terminally ill so she loved time playing hide a seek with DS whilst I spent time with nana. She's a nurse by trade so we made plans to help out this next week as she's on nights ( she will sleep at ours during the day whilst we go out so proper rest) I buy her flowers most weeks and its her birthday on Friday so extra big pressie of vouchers for some pampering whilst we look after nana.
We made both my mum and MiL fruit cakes. We sent MiL's as she is in deepest darkest North Wales which is quite a distance from us. Mum was supposed to come for the day on Friday but she is really poorly So we are having a "transferred feast" next weekend when both my brother and I are going home. Fruit cake improves with keeping, right?!
