I’m not sure if I’m just unreasonable or should be really annoyed because at the moment I’m annoyed! It’s my 1st Mothers Day tomorrow and I haven’t made a big deal about it to my husband because I know he would just get sick of me talking about it the whole time. I was asked this morning “what do you want for Mothers Day?” 24 hours before and I’m being asked now! I told him I’d leave it up to him and all he could say was “I haven’t got you anything so I’ll just get flowers and a card” I’m feeling a little disheartened cause I made a big deal for his 1st Fathers Day. I don’t want diamonds or anything really expensive but I feel for all the hard work I’ve done I’m being short changed. Am I being silly and expecting too much or should I expect a bit of attention and thanks? For the record, I won’t get breakfast in bed or a nice dinner because he wouldn’t think of that (never has, never will).

  • I find being direct and clearly stating things works well.


  • Oh dear! Sometimes you just need to spell it out for men!
