Just a reminder its March 18th.

Although now I remember I was going to buy a card from last year and save it and I didnt, so guess will have to make one.

Thanks for the heads up. Karma on the way. Turns out that my Mother will be flying in to visit us a couple of days after that. Which is nice.

Nice one. I would send Karma too if the OP hadn't opened a can of worms that nobody seems to have noticed yet. Do we now have to buy our US wives TWO sets mothers day cards and gifts? Thanks a lot!!!

you probably wont be able to get a card...mothers day here isnt until may so shops here wont be selling them yet.
My mum always has to have 2 mothers days, one from my sister in england in march and one from me in may (although this will be the last year that happens!!)

Luckily my mum has just moved to France and their Mother's Day is the same as US - phew! But I still have a step mum - will probably find a blank one!

Same here. My brother spoils her in person in March, and I spoil her in absentia in May. I got the number for the florists' down the road from them, and just call direct and order a bouquet from them, to be delivered, too.

I use to do the same when she lived in the UK, a lot cheaper than using something like Interflora That sounded a bit cheap didn't it!
