    A quick reminder that UK Mothers day is Sunday 15th March, next weekend. Oh, you forgot? Well, how about 15% off the flowers? I was shopping about online and stumbled on a code which I've posted under bargains in the for sale thread. Happy Mothers Day you thrifty devils!

    I thought it was today :blush:

    My Mum is quite happy with an early card and flowers as she'll no doubt end up with more from my siblings on the actual day anyway :)

    I may get some hate for saying this, but it's a complete waste of time and money.
    Far too commercialized (In England at least) But my general train of thought is, Why treat my mum on a single specific day of each year, I buy her things all year round, That's a much nicer way of doing things, and it keeps her happy/quiet. I also have the same thought to Valentines Day, Fathers day etc.

    I agree, but it is the cultural convention. I get flowers because my working schedule (the limited time outside which I spend on my wife and son) leaves little time for making something thoughtful (and mostly free) - it's a gesture in the right direction.

    Love costs nothing and good care only slightly more but if you've little time a thoughtful bunch of flowers, card or phone call are a step in the right direction.

    I have disowned my mother because she abused me as a child. She gets nothing.

    Sorry to be a bit of a downer on the thread.

    For once I am prepared!

    Take that, stupid "holiday" that doesn't even have the courtesy to give me a day off.
