A few years ago, I remember thinking how expensive Mothers Day was – Grandmothers and Mothers to buy for.
Now I am down to only needing to buy one gift.
First to go was my Mother in Law. We started off badly, but ended really well, once we sorted out a few issues.
She was quite an incredible woman – involved in so many charities we were worried we would not fit in everyone at the funeral.
Next was my paternal Grandmother. Only after she had passed did we find out how her life had been controlled by her husband from the day he retired onwards.
My maternal Grandmother was unexpected, as we all thought Grandpa would go first. To this day we don’t know what she did in the war, as it is still secret.
Grandpa lasted a few years after her.
Now there is just my Mum to buy for, and although money is tight, I would rather still be buying for 4.
