Fuck all not even a card! hmm

MarshaBrady Sun 10-Mar-13 09:02:57

A lovely card with a really gorgeous piece of writing in it from ds1.
A kiss from my 3 year old.

CuttedUpPear Sun 10-Mar-13 09:03:05

Peanut butter on toast in bed and a chocolate bar. And lots of hugs. And the washing up done with no fuss.

Why? Are we expecting material goods? hmm

MountainOrMolehill Sun 10-Mar-13 09:06:19

Each dc walked into the bedroom with a little bunch of daffodils whilst dh carried the coffeegrin

Get downstairs and there's a bouquet and two naice bottles of wines and cards near the fireplace.

Home made card from eldest from school.

More than happy with my little lot.

diamondee Sun 10-Mar-13 09:08:02

A long lie and breakfast in bed. Lovely

buttercrumble Sun 10-Mar-13 09:08:16

I wasn't expecting anything, my homemade card is amazing. But the pressie was a lovely bonus smile

noisytoys Sun 10-Mar-13 09:09:51

A garden pot plant from DD (4). I don't even have a garden but I love it because she chose it and I'm hoping it lives a long life indoors grin

FinnTheHuman Sun 10-Mar-13 09:10:43

Chilli chocolate, chilli cheese, and a bottle of piña colada to wash them down.

Toast in bed, and I've just sent DS to his dad to fetch me my third cup of tea, while still in bed.

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 10-Mar-13 09:14:01

Homemade cards and necklace - daffodils were given to me yesterday. And some new perfume

binger Sun 10-Mar-13 09:14:25

My fav chocs and creams and home made cards, and dh made me a bacon roll smile . Best of all were the kisses and cuddles.

SizzleSazz Sun 10-Mar-13 09:16:23

Homemade cards and tea in bed. Roast chicken and cake promised for later smile

Some nice homemade cards from DD'S.

And a biscuit ds (3yrs) made at nursery last Thursday and it's been sitting a bag he also made. I was not allowed to eat when he bought it home it had to wait til today. The thought was there grin.

They also got me some flowers.

2 bars of chocolate from DH (left here whilst he went out birdwatching hmm)
A "Happy Mother's Day !" and a kiss and hug from DS.
DD made me pancakes with chocolate and banana's yesterday with a cuppa brew - possibly the first one she's ever made me.
So, that was nice ! smile thanks
A slightly odd assortment of blessings, but lots to be thankful for x

IShallCallYouSquishy Sun 10-Mar-13 09:29:48

I got a sloppy 9.5month olds kiss and a very thoughtful personal card from her smile apparently she wanted to take me on a picnic but the weather has scuppered her plans. Think we are going to have a picnic in the living room later. First Mother's Day has been pretty amazing so far grin

Mrsrobertduvall Sun 10-Mar-13 09:32:38

Chocolate buttons.
And a meltdown from dd about maths gcse.

LoopDeLoops Sun 10-Mar-13 09:33:48

Zilch. For the first time ever, he forgot. Remembered his mum though. hmm

Annianni Sun 10-Mar-13 09:36:35

One shop bought card, one home made card and perfume.

And an extra hour in bed.

Abigail9580 Sun 10-Mar-13 09:38:01

Nothing! It's my first Mother's Day, so I guess he's not had the practice yet!! ( I remembered his mum)

Abigail9580 Sun 10-Mar-13 09:38:47

But happy happy Mother's Day to you all. Mwah mwah xxx

MrsKoala Sun 10-Mar-13 09:39:23

My first Mothers Day. I was only expecting a card but got Game of Thrones dvd (funny that DH really wanted to see that) and a lovely necklace and matching earrings and a really gorgeous card - its amazing what a 6 month old can do grin

However, this was because DH is on a warning after my birthday last month, where i got a card saying Happy Mothers Day and a frying pan confused .

angelinterceptor Sun 10-Mar-13 09:39:50

My DD has been up making my a microwave choc cake and icing it.

Also lovely card from her and my DS.

They also bought me the Skyfall DVD as I am the only person in the family (country) who hasn't seen it yet!

Mugglewhump Sun 10-Mar-13 09:40:35

A handwritten card from Dd 5 " To Mummee, I will do al your jobs toodae, luv Sophie, Georg and James" . A sausage sandwich and cup of tea in bed and my annual mothers day present of a bottle of gin!

Snuggles with my week old baby boy and a kiss from my 22 month old Ds followed by a loud trump!

What more could I want ?

HandMini Sun 10-Mar-13 09:43:18

Two homemade cards from DD1 (nanny - assisted as opposed to DH's doing). A bit of a rough night from poor little DD2 who is only five weeks and has a cold. Looking forward to a day with DH around and going to get him to do all the cooking...I don't care if its toast and omelette as long as I don't have to go in the kitchen.

daisydoodoo Sun 10-Mar-13 09:43:26

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.

Iwillorderthefood Sun 10-Mar-13 09:45:18

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.

Iwillorderthefood Sun 10-Mar-13 09:45:30

It was lovely though.

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

cocolepew Sun 10-Mar-13 09:50:44

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.

AWimbaWay Sun 10-Mar-13 09:51:07

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.

CeeceeBloomingdale Sun 10-Mar-13 09:51:22

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.

foxysocks Sun 10-Mar-13 10:44:16

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

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

Biggest present there could be.

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Sun 10-Mar-13 12:33:33

I got 2 hand made cards 1 bought card and the call the midwife books.

I expected a handmade card but DS secretly saved and asked a friend to help. I'm a lone parent and its nice to know he felt like he wanted to show his appreciation. smile

TheFallenMadonna Sun 10-Mar-13 12:45:38

A hama bead creation saying "mum power", two paper flowers (to add to the vase of fading paper flowers I get from DD every celebration), a big box of chocolates, yellow tulips, and a story written by DS (11) in which I feature as a very skilled sniper hmm.

Breakfast in bed, scrambled eggs and crispy bacon presented "master chef style" according to DS,with lots of height!

And we went out for a meal last night (by tradition), which was lovely.

iMe Sun 10-Mar-13 13:00:22

Breakfast in bed. Naice bubble bath. lovely long bath with dd. lunch now being cooked by DH. grin

I'm very happy, I got three cards, some beautiful flowers, and this necklace which has cheered me right up (I chose it myself...)

I made a cake this morning and DP will make dinner later. And for now I have the house to myself which is really the most perfect gift of them all.

MariahHairy Sun 10-Mar-13 13:34:07

nothing. at.all.
stupid DP made breakfast all for himself (& kids). washing machine is running since the morning, just hoovered the house. needless to say i did the cooking for lunch and clearing the kitchen too. DP is now sleeping hmm.

DC1 is severly disabled and i do most of the caring and i work all week too. was really hoping to get at least a mini treat today but nada :-(

Faxthatpam Sun 10-Mar-13 13:39:32

Mariah - that's crap sad - I'd go on bloody strike if I were you!

purplewithred Sun 10-Mar-13 13:52:04

Russel and Bromley leopard print ankle boots. The perks of grown up working DCs. grin

Loveleopardprint Sun 10-Mar-13 15:49:55

Two books, daisy perfume and cards. Best bit though was a power point telling me why I am the best mum! Made me cry. Dd2 now giving me foot rub. Heaven!

mamaduckbone Sun 10-Mar-13 16:01:34

Bacon sandwich and coffee in bed, homemade cards, tissue paper flowers and a 'promise voucher' made at school (ds1) and playgroup/home (ds2), cuddles and an argument free day. Ds1 and I had a pretend argument this morning since he thought he might struggle to get through the whole day so we got it over and done with! grin

ItsintheBag Sun 10-Mar-13 16:04:47

I got a homemade paper bag decorated and inside with ten pieces of paper in with ten reasons why he loves me (courtesy of school)

I had a little sniff at that.

blondiep14 Sun 10-Mar-13 16:13:06

I got a card written by DS1 who is 5, some yellow roses and a bacon roll from DH.
DS's chose me three pots and planted some primroses in them with MIL yesterday. MIL also hosted lunch so am full of roast beef, red wine and good cheer wine

BagWoman Sun 10-Mar-13 16:15:04

Nothing yet- DCs live away from home, and nothing come in post-yet. Both too strapped for cash for bouquets- so that's it for me eh?

MunchkinsMumof2 Sun 10-Mar-13 16:19:45

I got homemade cards from my dc, a homemade sewing kit holder, a bunch of tulips and a voucher for a pedicure. I feel very loved! Happy Mother's Day Style&Beauty experts thanks

cardamomginger Sun 10-Mar-13 16:27:19

On Thursday I got a card from DD that she made at nursery. Today she threw up all over me. She did the same thing last year.

SoYo Sun 10-Mar-13 16:29:28

First Mothering Sunday here. 11 day old DD made me a card with a photo of her on on the computer this morning (she's very advanced) while I snoozed after getting total of 90 mins sleep overnight. DH is making roast dinner & homemade profiteroles (yummy) & is very apologetic over lack of pressie but as he hasn't left my side in 12 days he's very forgiven! He's going to take us for nice lunch out later this week. Very lucky Mummy here. Best bit is warm snugly newborn cuddles.

OhMyNoReally Sun 10-Mar-13 16:30:59

A lovely homemade card, a cute bought card a gorgeous red flowering plant in a pot, some lovely white chocolate truffles and an amazing replica Venus of Willendorf (extremely happy about the venus) Also a lovely lie in, a great walk in a blizzard and a lovely meal out.

I'm a very lucky lady. grin

survivingwinter Sun 10-Mar-13 16:47:15

Oh MariahHairy sad

V happy this morning with a card from each of the DC and some body butter from the Body Shop! DH cooking roast now yum. I feel very lucky smile

dottyaboutstripes Sun 10-Mar-13 16:58:25

I've been spoilt rotten! Bacon butty & v hot tea made by dd2 for breakfast, dh is cooking a roast beef dinner.
I was given a variety of home made and shop bought cards plus I got an ecard (I have 6dc!), decleor goodies, a Coach handbag, chocs, a book, a box of tea bags & new mug grin
Of course I'd give it all back to have had dd1 here today - she's in her first yr at uni and I miss her MASSIVELY!

HaveAGoodDay Sun 10-Mar-13 17:18:08

Just wanted to give Mariah this thanks smile

ujjayi Sun 10-Mar-13 17:26:35

Happy Mothers Day all smile. What a lovely thread - so sweet to hear of sloppy kisses, homemade cards and tales of heroic mothers ;)

For those of you who are left feeling disappointed, I hope you at least manage some lovely cuddles and moments with DCs today.

DC brought me breakfast in bed - fruit salad & a cup of Assam. A bunch of ranunculus & anenomes in a jam jar and two lovely homemade cards. DH cooked lunch - roast beef, yum. And we've just had a cosy day at home.

This has been such a special day for me. I have been very ill recently and am learning more and more the importance of enjoying each and every moment.

Jayne266 Sun 10-Mar-13 17:34:19

I got a lie in and a foot and hand casting kit from my DH and lovely cards. It's my first mothers day.

AlistairSim Sun 10-Mar-13 17:47:38

thanks for all of you who are feeling a bit neglected.

madammecholet Sun 10-Mar-13 18:40:38

My DD used his first ever £2 pocket money to buy me 2 bars of chocolate which he put in a paper bag and then decorated.. <weeps>..

plus a bouquet of flowers from DD & MAC makeup (how the kids 10yrs/4yrs knew my requirements?!)...

I then put DH on the train to Twickenham to watch ENG V Italy and had the family (women) over for girls tapas & prosecco lunch... bliss wine

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 11-Mar-13 11:27:42

MissyMooandherBeaverofSteel - if you see this can you pm me? ta!

JumpHerWho Mon 11-Mar-13 11:40:55

Nothing... I requested Paul Smith Rose perfume and it didn't appear - DH said 'oh I thought you were just going to add it to the Tesco order' hmm

Ordered myself a beautiful Becksondergaard scarf though which DH doesn't know so thank you very much 14mo DS smile

SkylarWhite Mon 11-Mar-13 14:48:25

I got woken up at 7am (grrrrr) but I did get tea and chocolate in bed shortly afterwards, some lovely cards and more gifts than I have ever received before! DH got me a voucher for a deep tissue massage (I could have cried...so stressed lately!) and DS had saved his pocket money and bought me chocolates, flowers, a teddy, a new take-out coffee mug (mine broke last week) and some smelly stuff. I was touched.

Got my mum a big bouquet of spring flowers and made her dinner.

Andro Mon 11-Mar-13 15:19:20

Chocolate from DD, vegetable seedlings from DS (I grow veg and he picked some lovely ones) and DH...Dh is spoiling me. I am being sent to France to have custom perfume made for me, he has made the arrangements but won't tell me where he's sending me!
