Look what I got me mum!

I love spoiling my mum, cuz she is the most awesomest person in the whole universe. Yes that’s right. She’s raised 4 difficult kids whilst being a special needs teacher (as if that wasn’t enough) and also put up with a husband that couldn’t give less of a d*mn about it all.

Mum has now been supporting us children for 42 years now and still supports me while I’m at uni by paying some of my debt off already. Unfortunately uni in the UK is ridiculously in regards to rent! Think about it, in Germany I had a 1 bedroom flat for 300€ (which is currently £280) including bills! Next year, I will be paying £470 a month, which works out as 500€, and that will be just for a ROOM! Most students go through this stuff, but mostly not with those expenses. But if you go to a uni that is 5min off the city centre, you’re bound to pay that much. And here I was thinking it was only London that is that expensive. WRONG!

So she supports me a lot emotionally and financially (about £80 a month and whenever I need money like for deposits) so when I do get to see her, I love to spoil her rotten with buying silly things and with helping out in the household (yes, my father is still massively useless and sits in front of the computer all day).

So the other day when we got into town for her to get her nails done, I used the time to find her some cute stuff to keep. As mum is a huuuge fan of Africa (she even got her own Africa room!!), I went for that theme!

All these items were available for 2€ (so about £1.75) from Six (a jewellery brand) in Karstadt (one of the German equivalents to John Lewis, Debenhams and Selfridges).

I don’t expect the jewellery to last long or for Mum to use it often, because she’s got about a ton of jewellery, but I don’t care. She was very happy to see me spend any time or thought on her, but how could I not?

I LOVE YOU MUMMY!!
Ladies, dont ever forget how much your mum or dad or both have done for you. Turn around to them and tell them ‘thanks‘ or ‘i love you‘. I can’t tell it mum often enough. She needs to know, especially when I’m still being a b*tch to her sometimes!! 
I think parents often don’t get enough love and appreciation from their offspring!! So go tell them that you are grateful that they’ve given you your life and all the stuff you have and all the abilities and skills you’ve got to advance in life!!
And now I’m off to wash mum’s hair, just because I can :-) 
Much love to you and your mum/dad/parents,
Miss drifted Snow White
