she has been my rock it is never too much for her to help and support me even though she has had a rough time too, 3 kids and works full time!
It is her and her DH 20th wedding anniversary tomorrow - they are skint and have spent every spare penny on the kids for xmas - when I asked what they were doing she said just staying in with a bottle of wine as they didnt want to waste £50 on a meal out
I have been saving my tesco vouchers for a trip home (to South Africa) next year, so I cashed in £50 worth for restaurant vouchers to a restaurant I know they love and gave them to her tonight (she would never ever in a million years take money from me) - and she is so shocked and over the moon - big smiles on both their faces - it was soooooooo worth it
So go on am I being smug to feel just a teesny bit chuffed with myself grin

Can I join in? Called my BF today who has just moved into her first owned flat and is in bed with the lurgy and surrounded by boxes. She doesn't have a dvd player and I work in an office where people upgrade all the time so I bought an almost brand new one off the company for 30 quid and send it in a taxi round to her house with some trashy mags, chocs and lemsip.....

But it didn't have the right cable with it - oh well - she can get that when she's well again!

Her 2 older ones are ok by themselves (16 and 14), the little one (7 same as my DD1) I did offer to have overnight but they are luckily both going to a sleepover party

That isn't being smug, that is being delighted at the results of your generosity - truly worthwhile IMO grin
