GATHERING MY MUMS 87th BIRTHDAY PRESSIES..APPLE GREEN THEME!!!?? & something maybe lurking!!




Hello ladies...quick little post to show you a few goodies i purchased today for my mum's 87th birthday this coming Monday...

For some reason i felt like doing a "GRANNY SMITH APPLE" GREEN/OLIVE green coloured MIXED theme..

found some lovely bits & pieces today.. french chic cup/saucer & plate...matching jug..mathcing tea towels...tied with ribbon I have...some lovely trio of soaps...
I intend to make some YUMMY little choccies in the matching green/dot ROBERT GORDON mini foil cupcake cases i have...Plus other stuff!!
Just a little snippet....I want to get her a matching coloured scarf/ring/earrings & handbag if possible..
will wrap in brown recycled paper with BIG GREEN RIBBON....THAT is the PLAN..!!! I have a lovely matching green coloured card...

BUT CHRISTIAN IS VERY sick with GASTRO...!!!
& with his 1st exam re his 3rd year uni exams starting tomorrow morning....!!!

LONG STORY...BUT I had to literally get him to the doctors under extreme suffering to get a doctors certificate to say he couldnt sit this exam in the morning...specific forms have to be filled in etc...

( i confess!! i actually called the ambulance as he was writhing in pain on the floor...YES..& MORE YES..I am a total panic merchant...& having been a policewoman I cannot reconcile my panic state????!!!)..........

BUT i then reconcile it with the OLD motherly/maternal instincts...PANIC!!!!!
Hope you ladies empathise & make me feel better...feeling quite guilty calling out the ambos...
SOO in between looking after gorgeous SON... I did purchase a few items for mums birthday as I figured...
GUESS who will BE NEXT????? with gastro....!! ME!
I am HOPing it is food poisining?? (not from me...!!!)..............
if NOT ... i wait in awkward anticipation of something happening to me...as it ALWAYS has followed on in the past!!
take care everyone...& remember to ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS!!!!!!!!!!

xx andrea

Love your choice for your Mum just beautiful. Never feel guilty when you make a decision on the health of your child. You went with your instinct and bravo to you.

Hi Andrea,
Oh dear me, sounds like a panic is a rising in your house.
I hope your son will be OK and you don't get that germ.

Love your Mum's pressies, makes me want to be your Mum.
Happy Birthday to her!
Hugs,
Anna

Hi Andrea, loving the goodies you bought for your mum! She's a lucky girl! Wouldn't mind the green trio myself.
I suppose it's a mother's instinct to panic a bit when their child's in horrible pain. Hope he gets better soon. Now tell me were you a policewoman or lawyer or both! take care, Maryann

Oh boy, gastro is just the worst thing. I really hope you don't get it Andrea! I am a reall stickler for washing hands especially if we have been to the shops etc...
Your apple green them looks wonderful and I'm sure she will love it all.

Hey Andrea,
What gorgeous birthday goodies gor a gorgeous woman. I hope your mum has a fabulous day ((HUGS))
I hope the gastro bug has left the building. I know of a couple of people who have had it & it's not nice.

I know this gastro thing too, its a horrid horrid thing. You really do feel like you are dying. I am so sorry for you. Happy Beautiful Birthday to your mum and the theme is PERFECT.
