So what has been giving me the shits?
This year I received the worst Mother’s Day present ever … FFS
It even surpassed the year HB didn’t buy me a thing. Not even a card … FFS
A fucking skydiving voucher?
Obviously I did not drop enough clues about diamond earrings, Lush vouchers, massage, facial and so on … FFS
How did it go down?
We ran a 5km road race the night before and I had to get up at 5.30am on Mother’s Day to run the 8km race … No FFS
I had 90 minutes sleep due to excitement of achieving my first sub 26 mins for my 5km race and stomach issues for the rest of the night … FFS
No need for an alarm … FFS
HB and Maggie met down on the beach for the race and we had a great time afterwards … No FFS
I still hadn’t received my present but didn’t care, I was exhausted and needed a nap … FFS
HB then informed he had booked brunch at our local cafe for 11am … NO FFS
That’s lovely, but that’s also when the almost 3 year old loses her shit and needs to go to bed … FFS
Maggie is quite aware of this and now says ‘I’m so very tired, I want to go home and go to bed’. I’m with you kid … No FFS
I told HB that it was a lovely gesture, but we would have to cancel … FFS
He took it well but said he wanted to give me my present in public ?! … FFS
Who does this ?!
I told him where he could stick his present … FFS
At this point I knew it wasn’t diamonds … FFS
When I finally opened the card and saw the sky diving voucher, there were no longer words to be said … FFS
Quite unusual for me.
I was lost for words for another reason, the handwritten cards were so beautiful I started crying straight away … No FFS
HB is terrified of heights himself … FFS
I’m not so bad with them but considering I can barely manage to run at the moment without a toilet block in sight, falling out the air at 12,000 ft doesn’t sound like something fun to do … FFS
I told him I would do it if he did it. The subject was changed pretty quickly. Mofo … FFS
After I got over my disappointment I did what any sane Mother would do … No FFS
I went online and bought my own Mother’s Day present … FFS
Ten minutes of that was enough to make me realise just how lucky I really am … No FFS
We went out for dinner to the Ski club and ended the day watching our daughter dance under the stars … No FFS
HB found out the next day about my purchased gift and told me to pay for it myself … FFS
No problem, see people this is why there is the occasional sponsored post on the blog. I have my own little blog slush fund for moments in life like these … No FFS
I may or may not have cut up that sky diving voucher and put it on top of the bin for him to see … FFS
I’m a bitch like that.
But I love him and he loves me … No FFS
This experience highlights one thing, we both don’t need a thing in our lives, we have everything we need and more … No FFS
We’ve made a promise not to buy anymore presents … FFS
Our most treasured items are ones that cannot be bought with money … No FFS
The ones we want also cannot be bought … FFS
Cheaper than mofo therapy.
What is FFS Friday?
