Mothers Day reminder
 
Mothers day in the UK is 3rd April.

Lorna in the Italian forum has recommended these people if anyone is interested in sending flowers.


If anybody wants to send flowers in the UK, the 10% discount code for
bunches.co.uk is MD11 .......... includes free delivery and a free box of milk chocolates.
NB. Orders must be placed before midnight Saturday March 19th.

World Market is selling Mothers Day Cards, or I highly recommend moon pig.com
I've also had good results from M&S when sending flowers :thumbsup:

I bought extra cards last Mothers Day so I could send them to the UK this year. However, as it turns out I am going to the UK in 2 weeks for my brothers wedding so I am going to leave the 3 cards there (mother, mother in law and stepmother). I am also going to buy 3 Mothers Day cards that say 'Mum' when I am there so I can send them next year. Of course I will probably forget where I put them and will end up buying cards via Moonpig! :lol:

I am amazed that I have remembered where I kept the cards I got last year! I usually forget what I did last week never mind bought last year! :o

Why don't you just keep the cards you already have for next year and buy cards for this year when you're in the UK?
It would save having to take cards backwards and forwards.

I normally use Moonpig for sending cards in the UK, though this year my mom will be here on Mother's Day so now I have to use the US version of Moonpig and get a Mother's Day card as they won't be in the shops here yet.

Nice to have the reminder about it.

I used to do that when I first came here. My mum has been gone 19 years now. I still miss her. :(

I also use Moonpig for cards and have used them to send flowers also, don't think you can beat them tbh but I may try one of the other sites that's been recommended for a change this Mother's Day. Just out of interest, why's it so late this year, I always thought it was in March :confused:

They changed it this year so all us late Expats can be on time for a change ;)

Its my Mum's b/day today, so had flowers delivered to her for her b/day and Mothers Day, (although it is a way off yet!!) Need to get organized and get my cards... Thanks to MsElui for reminding us :thumbup:
