Re: UK Mother's Day - last chance to make the call

Whew, made it. Thanks, Nev.

Could you remind me about Australian Mother's Day, too, please. Don't worry about Father's Day, clearly that's not important.

Mother's Day [UK]

Just a quick heads-up to UK ex-pats, that it's Mother's Day this coming Sunday - Apr. 3rd (don't know if same for other non-CH countries).

If like me, in past years, because of the different time of Swiss Mother's Day, you've overlooked (forgotten) that it's always 3 wks. before Easter, then consider this a timely reminder.

Re: Mother's Day

My little boy just turned 5 and has made my day today, coming into my room, big kiss and saying Happy mothersday mummy, i love you, then I was presented with a handmade paper flower made at kindergarten that hides a lip balm, and a picture , and a heart biscuit baked at krippe, brought tear to my eye

Above quickly followed by "Can I play the big computer now" ha

Dont the simple things mean so much more, he was so proud of these, made my heart melt and meant so much more that anything you could buy me

Re: Mother's Day

My little guy is 13 month's old so this was my second mother's day. Daddy took him to pick flowers and made a Zopf, I made crepes. Then we went to the American car show in Chur and the park in Bad Ragaz. Hope all you mothers out there also had an awesome mother's day!

My little boy just turned 5 and has made my day today...
It's the best innit, I got a lip balm from my little one too, how nice. They made cinnamon and clove bath salts for moms in her creche, I have to save the little cards and drawings...Better than when I was her age and bought my mom an aftershave coz I couldn't read yet . Mom still has it in her treasure box, I think.

Lovely photo Puhutes! Mother's Day also makes me look back and think abou the few past ones.

Hope all the moms had their special day.
