Because we're worth it...



Mr P will be purchasing me a beautiful bouquet for Mothering Sunday... probably not roses... but something...
by that I mean that I will be using money from our joint bank account to purchase them for myself... lol
Don't get me wrong he is very thoughtful and loving in so many other ways but random acts of flower giving do not come into the complex equation that is my soul mate... but a girl needs a bunch of flowers every now and again...

With that in mind I thought I would just ask if anyone else would like to join Joanne, Nicola, Karen, Jenn and myself for the Mothering Sunday swap?

The swap is open to anyone, you don't have to live in the UK and you don't even have to be a mum!
we haven't set a monetary value, just that it should be something handmade by you or someone else
you could include something sweet and maybe even a treat...
send parcels by or before the 1st of March, which will mean that the recipient will receive their parcel by Mothers day on the 14th March (that gives you 6 weeks to gather, create and put together a lovely gift for a lovely lady)

Joanne and I will be randomly partnering up people tomorrow (Monday 25th Jan) and I will do a post at the end of the day to let you know who you will be swapping with. All you need to do then is visit your partners blog and get to know each other likes and dislikes, for example : I know Joanne loves milk chocolate and tea and dislikes coffee and dark chocolate... oh and don't forget to swap addresses...

Thank you to the following friends that have joined us so far:

Nicola (UK) smilernpb
Karen (UK) karens playtime
Jenn (USA) yarn addicts anonymous

If you would like to join us please feel free to leave a comment below

Thank you to everyone that has stopped by and left comments I do so love reading them

take care and hugs to you all

I got a good laugh from that. At first I was so highly impressed that your husband bought you such a gorgeous bouquet!!!

My sweety tries to get away with the single rose thing, which in my book says, "I'm too cheap to buy you what you really want," or maybe "I don't 'get' the flower bouquet thing, so I'll just buy one." Clueless. If he only knew just how much the gift of a bouquet would give him in return!!! jan

Your description of Mr. P. sounds a lot like the way I describe my Mr. VDS. Flowers just do not fall into that equation LOL Although, I have given him a single rose on several occasions, just to say "I love you" or "I miss you".

Unfortunately, due to the lack of a job, I cannot join the swap. I would have loved to but such is life. I hope everyone enjoys their surprises and has a lovely Mother's day.
