My parents once gave me a photo album. Initially I wasn't impressed as I thought it was a hint to get the photos of the children sorted, but when I opened the album I found it was full of photos of me and my siblings as a baby (me) and small child. I had hardly seen them before as my dad used to have all his photos as slides and we rarely had a slide projector. They had spent a small fortune getting them all printed for me.
when we had been going out for 6months, h (then fiancee) sent me such a huge bouget of flowers at work that i had to stand it in a BIG bucket....all the girls at work were sooooo jealous and kept admiring them all day!!!
last year he bought me an 18ct white gold eternity ring with 7 diamonds set in it
sigh.....those were the days.....
but the best present of all was the card and paper flowers the children made for me for mothers day this year!!
