Thanks to my mum,who brought me up (and what a good job she did) only imo and hers lol..but she is incredible and improves all the time..she keeps buying stuff and I just know it's only a matter of time till she passes it on to me..last month a soup and smoothie maker, today a rechargeable Hoover which folds down (that actually might be useful for when we purchase a motorhome) Now just need to have a tussle with my conscience....umm! is it ethical and how do I persuade her to buy a double skillet cos I want one of those..only kidding! Will take what I'm given. THANKS MUM

If she is anything like my mum who likes to buy everything including the kitchen sink you’d better make sure you have a good payload.

My mum-in-law gives us her overspill (excess dosh) she also made a mistake one time and bought over £100 of Sloggi underwear, she thought she had the right size, unpacked them & took all the labels off including the sewn in ones, discovered her mistake and gave them all to me! Haven’t had to buy any for ages now!

Apart from all the money through the years I think the best hand out I’ve had from Mum was when she bought our last van then realised she couldn’t drive it due to a post by @DBK and finding out she no C1.

That post really broke her heart that day . . But now she’s happy to be chauffeured around.

Would your mum like another liverpool girl to look after, we could share the treats. But you can keep the cheese as I don’t like it x

Only have a very small family so wouldn’t mind more. Do you have any men that are good at diy as we are a family of females and sometimes need help with a drill xx

Yes, I am also lucky enough to have both my parents. My Dad isn't well and I am not sure we will have another Christmas with him........

Yes I know..but we have thought that ever since dad had a heart attack..then 2 strokes..pneumonia..I could go on...but that was nearly 8 years ago..and he can walk again and has no problem giving his opinions...sometimes we think too far ahead..perhaps we should live in the present more..hope your dad improves...mine did...and some.
