Welcome back to PoCoLo with Stephanie and I and a Happy Mother's Day to you all. It's not something that really gets celebrated here. I've sent cards and token gifts to both our Mothers. I don't expect anything from our children, although flowers arrived from child 4 and his wife yesterday and child 2 and his wife have told me they can't post my gift, it's too fragile.
When I'm travelling back and forth to Dubai I tend to get things ready in advance and make sure they're left behind to get posted out in time. I'm back to Dubai in April, I'll be socially distancing dropping Easter Gifts after March 29th and I'm leaving stamped cards with a friend to post on my behalf for birthdays in May and June until I return.
I've have some lovely friends who will either give me my birthday gift/card to take with me or will ensure it gets posted out in time. It'll be strange being back in the UK full time and not having to think so far ahead.
