Mothers Day has come and gone for another year and I am pleased to say that I received wonderful gifts from the heart and no clutter.
My son who is a Fine Arts student at university drew a self portrait in ink for me which I have framed and put on the wall beside the collage of photos and drawings her had done previously of his sister. He signed it and finger printed it so that when he is rich and famous I would be able to sell it and make my fortune (Just kidding sort of).
My daughter who is late with her gift as usual is putting a book together about me with photos and her feeling on what a wonderful person I am. At least that had better be the case or I could soon cut off her education allowance (Just kidding sort of). The book she made for her father was wonderful so I am looking forward to reading mine.
My husband made me a cup of tea in bed and then took me for coffee before I went to work (Yes, I know there should be a law against mothers having to work on Mothers Day). He also cooked a lovely roast dinner and cleaned everything up afterwards which was really quite a treat.
So as you see it is possible to spend next to nothing but a little bit of time and effort to make an occasion very special. I will treasure these gifts forever.
In case you are thinking that the book and drawing may be considered as clutter I have sacrificed one large book out of my bookcase to make way for these two pricious items. This book will not appear as one of my decluttering items because it is a trade off.
