Happy Mither's Day....!

I quite like Mother's Days. If only to see if the amount of reminding my sons of this day their father gives them beforehand actually sinks in. It usually does and GingerNut was so prepared he'd bought my card and gone and lost it before today. So I wouldn't miss out, he made a very quick replacement before his band practise. It comprised of thus:

Front cover:     big letters with Happy Mother's Day, a million kisses and a bubble at the bottom saying: "that was tiring"    
                        
Inside left - a poem:       "Although the day's no as special as engaged or getting merried. Keep in mind, your guitar'll be mine, the day yer deed and berried!........only jokin' - love you!
                                     
Inside right - a message:    To Maw, Happy Mother's Day.........fi yer best son Adam...xxx...ps...Ross might have bought ye chocolates, but he widnae sing for ye...!
                                        
What an impromptu card to receive. In pure unadulterated GingerNut style. How will I break the news to him that I want cremating...me and all my oak and pine things alike...?

lol...I know there's a language barrier with me being Scottish and all that but yes - I thought the 'card' was hilarious. He's found the lost one now..!

Mum has always said to us that she isn't bothered about presents but appreciates a really nice card.

The cards are usually overtly offensive and I've never dared try missing a present to put her theory to the test!

Utterly utterly brilliant! What a superb card and verse. Happy murrah's day hen!

Hilarious card, although I cringe at the thought of daring to write anything similar in a card to my own mom. I had to buy the card this week but won't send it until May, which is when Mother's Day falls in Canada. Glad you had a good day!

There is something special about a handmade card ... and you even get a bonus card to go with it!
