It should be called wife's day in our house. :?

Every year I get the phone call from nipper:- " Can you get Mum a box of chocs or something for Mother's day please Dad"

(He does the same for her Birthday as well).

Never a hint of any money being sent or reimbursed! :cussing: :cussing:

Say £20/£30 a year for the last 15 years or so, I could treat myself to summat nice with £400.

Strictly speaking it's Mothering Sunday rather than Mother's Day. It's a religious festival always the fourth Sunday in lent and three weeks before easter and was originally intended that people visit their mother church on that day. Nowadays it has been taken over by crass commercialism and turned into Mother's Day where offspring are bombarded with advice to buy mater a bunch of flowers, choccys and a card.
As anti commercialism atheists we don't bother in our house.

Waste of time here...
Was going to go out today, but the kids were giving grief, so ruined the day...
I gave the wifes car thorough valet yesterday, so shes had that as her present (from me ) :wtf:
And i dont need to worry about my own mother, because she hasnt bothered speaking to any of the three of us for almost 7 years.
