An unexpected present of a bead for my bracelet. I know a lot of style and beauty afficionado's will think this beyind tacky, but I love my trollbead bracelet. Its not got many beads on but all chosen by my gorgeous dc.

A lie in, breakfast in bed and a poem that likened me to a chef, which had DH and I in well hidden stitches. My cooking is adequate.

It was lovely though.

Special Mother's Day Congrats to Muggle and Mini and any others with tiny newbies thanks
Ahhh x

A tube of Mini Eggs and a lovely compact mirror from DD.
A teddy plague saying Best Mummy Ever and a tiny pillow saying home sweet home from DD2.
Both bought me cards and I also got a card from the dog grin.

Beautiful handmade cards with poems, Ds's poem likened me to a lovely soft pillow and Dd1's to a soft chinchilla. I may start a diet tomorrow. They are wonderful grin.

Lots of loveliness - a tan leather bag (bought this myself and hubby refunded me), flowers, box of chocs and a slab of decorated chocolate from each girl that they chose themselves. Several cards, a bought one from each and the eldest made 3 homemade ones at school, rainbows etc. Now the down side - it's snowing, they woke me at 6:30 and hubby snored until 9:30 before getting me a cuppa. He's off to footy all day and big one has a party to go and I need to clean for MIL coming to so my Mother's Day will be short lived. I have EARNED these gifts wink

cocolepew Sun 10-Mar-13 09:52:38

Oh and DD2 made me cornflake buns yesterday that appear to be 90% chocolate!

TheOneAndOnlyAlpha Sun 10-Mar-13 09:54:52

Seeds for my new garden. Perfecto!

Limelight Sun 10-Mar-13 10:02:58

Home-made cards from both DC (DS is 5, DD is 2) and they helped DH make breakfast. Also a particularly special drawing of me, DS (5), and a stoat doing some 'crazy mother's day moves'.

He's a bit of a one off my boy. smile

stoat sounds fun Limelight smile Nice imagination !

Happy mothers day everyone thanks

Ds who is 11 has been working his socks off for 2 months to earn money for an xbox memory thing, or so I thought, he has really been out washing neighbours cars, doing lots of extra jobs in the house and taking a neighbours dog for a walk to earn money to buy me the insanity fitness dvds, I sobbed when he told me he planned it all.

I got 4 homemade cards, chocolate, flowers and best of all lots of cuddles and kisses from ds and my 3 dds who thought putting bright red lipstick on before smothering me in kisses would be hilarious grin

CareerGirl01 Sun 10-Mar-13 10:24:32

Congrats to all the first-time MD mums here! Got home made and shop card and home made chocolates from DD1 (4YO) and the appearance of a very obvious foot from DD2 - who is minus 8 weeks! I never saw anything like this when pg with DD1 so it was scary and lovely at the same time.

happy mothering sunday! (I wrote mithering the first time, perhaps more accurate?!)

i got two homemade cards - DD made hers at school along with two big tissue paper flowers, DS made his at nursery and it has a picture of a 'buff-fly' on it <melts>

AND as if that wasn't enough DH organised this beautiful scarf from them both too. www.donnaida.com/becksondergaard-x-sandy-scarf-steel.html

have just had family brunch and about to head out for a walk over the bridge, before rugby and toad in the hole (DH speciality!) later. might even have a sneaky vino <rock and roll>

thanks all round

A huge card and lovely cuddle off dd (2.7) she also got me an urban decay Theodora palette and a primer potion very clever of her to go to debenhams and buy them smile

ChompieMum Sun 10-Mar-13 10:51:12

A bed full of diaorrhea at 3.30 am from DC 3. Both of us covered head to toe - co-sleeping.

INeverSaidThat Sun 10-Mar-13 10:57:57

Toast and a bag of dolly mixtures. From DD and DS2. Had a lovely long phone call from DS1 last night. smile

racingheart Sun 10-Mar-13 11:00:28

Tea in bed - brought by DS1 with the mug inside a bowl to avoid spillage.
Cards I'd bought ages ago for emergencies - but with very cute messages in them.
Daffs
A candle
Some lovely bubble bath - the good stuff.
A lovely breakfast of croissants and berries.

Feeling all loved up.

DH has taken them off to rugby. I'm about to have a long bath in peace.

Wonderland121 Sun 10-Mar-13 11:02:26

Breakfast in bed crumpets & coffee.

Big bouquet of gorgeous flowers, some thorntons chocolates and some homemade fudge with 2 gorgeous cards.

I expected nothing and am over the moon smile

Mulberry purse (to replace the one stolen a few months ago), Starbucks in bed, chocs, flowers and cards. Roast dinner (thank you M&S for your £15 special) promised for later! Am very very lucky.

A card from DD (oh look mummy I found this card on the table, can I write it for you - yes dear I bought I as a "spare"in case Daddy forgot.

Lovely message inside and a wooden owl necklace she chose herself.

Darlingclementine Sun 10-Mar-13 11:34:46

A lovely bunch of roses, chocolates and a teddy bear (!) that 3 month old DS has taken a fancy too. Along with a card larger than him!

Off out for a walk and then lunch. First Mother's Day so feel very, very lucky. We found out I was pregnant with DS last Mother's Day too grin

Mumof3men Sun 10-Mar-13 12:26:50

a big bunch of flowers, a HUGE box of Thorntons, ds3 surprised me when I went in to open the curtains in the spare room yesterday (he lives 100 miles away and came home for a visit), ds 1 is making a roast for lunch and ds2 who is working tonight 100 miles away rang this morning :-)

NotSoNervous Sun 10-Mar-13 12:29:36

I got the most beautiful gummy smile from my 4m old DD and a card and beautiful flowers. Also got a card of DP telling me I'm a great mum which was lovely
