Tell me about yours.
My Mum was great. Really great. But this will the 20th Mothers' Day without her. Long got over it, but I suppose it's a bit poignant that my little girl is about to see her very first Mothers' Day, and naturally, having grandparents around would have completed the picture.
my mum is great. she is wee. she is an artist. looks a bit like rod stewart. i can tell her anything.
don't spoil my mother on mothers day now as its my day.so i will have breakfast in bed and thenn will dgo and do a 10 mile bike TT followed by a long ride home on the bike.....
I don't think its a time to spoil my mother ..spending time with her all year around is more important than buying flowers and chocolate because the industry thinks i should
My mum was amazing and I miss her every day. I get a big knot in my stomach when I walk into a shop at this time of year and see all the cards/flowers/chocolates/etc.However, I am looking forward to the handmade gift which 4-year-old told me he has made - but he can't tell me what it is because it's a secret surprise.

I'm trying to imagine an ickle Rod Stewart artist!
sorry to hear your relationship with your mum is strained. It isn't uncommon. I think that's why I appreciate my mum being so patient with me. I know several people who weren't so lucky. I haven't ever felt pressured to successful etc (just as well!) but perhaps being the youngest helps there.
We nearly lost mum last year (brain bleed and an anyuerism) so I'm all the more greatful to still have her about. She turned 70 this year past...she's on a diet so no chocolates probably but definitely a big bunch of flowers.
For many years I thought I was the only person who had a difficult relationship with her mother.
In the last few years I've realised that a lot of people do, and far worse than mine!
However, I will be cooking dinner for her (and my sister and her husband) on Sunday. Can't say I'm looking forward to it much though.
I love my Mum. She's brilliant
My mum will be 87 this April, fit as a fiddle. Shops for the old people in her sheltered housing She's my mum and I can't imagine not having her around
Strangely my wife hated her Mum, she died last October, was a difficult time - we did go to the funeral more out of a sense of duty - we hadn't seen her for a couple of years and my wife hadn'tr spoken to her for nearly as long. Just before she died she removed my Wife from her will, something her two brothers and half sister mada a great deal of - caused an upset - (I had the last laugh as I was able to tell her older brother who was the executor that the £15,000 shares he was talking about had been sold two years previously as she needed money to pay her ground rent etc at the retirement home - how did I know this - because I had heped her!!!!) Funnily enough I miss her more than my wife does.
My Mum, 79 years old, she is beginning to get a bit confused but I love her to bits and we went to see her last Sunday -
I think this will be my 11th non-mothers day. It wasn't ever a big deal in our family once us children had grown up. That said the first few years were hard from a rather jealous 'but everyone else has a mother...'
