it's never hard to surprise with a gift!

I just had a very chipper telephone call from my mother thanking me for a load of goodies I'd sent her (yeah for online supermarkets!). Now I told her last week that I was sending them, but of course, that had disappeared into the mists. She was really cheerful (although that might have been the Bailey's talking - but as she said, she had to check to make sure it hadn't gone off :D ) and was much more like my mother. Really gave me a lift. Tomorrow, she's got a potted rose arriving, and the following day (I expect) a couple of dresses I sent. Not quite the items in the 12 days of christmas, but still..

Brilliant Jennifer, well done. ( Sorry I'm the one who's a few days late and a few pounds short here this time...)
