My mum was concerned that I was at home alone and unwell and asked us over for lunch. We headed over with a bunch of flowers and our gifts for her. I picked some bright colourful roses because she loves both roses and bright colours.
My husband usually takes the kids to pick me flowers and chocolates on Mothers Day, but as he is not here this time, I wasn't expecting much. I turned up to mums's to find flowers and gifts from my sisters waiting from me.
Fashionista had stopped by the night before and left a single red velvety rose this box of cupcakes that she had made.
The girls bought me books and a clutch which went down very well.
Kooky Little Sister also bought me these very elegant bangles.
These are the coloured version she bought for our mum.
Both mum and I ended up with nice little stashes and had a really nice day (just a shame I couldn't taste her gorgeous food properly).

The Prophet Muhammad said, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him: Your Heaven lies under the feet of your mother (Ahmad, Nasai).
The Prophet Muhammad said: Be good to your mother (Bukhari, Muslim).
