Not your typical mother..

Well my boys know me well. The other day they went off shopping for my Mothers Day present and when I caught up with them later they both seemed very pleased with themselves. 
"It's something you really need" they said.. Slippers? I had no idea.
Anyway, Sunday morning my son comes out holding something I never expected, but totally love! And it's not your typical Mothers Day present, but then I am not a typical mummy..:)....
It's a TOOL BOX!

How cool is it? It's to put all my new leather work tools in it. Not only did I get this box but they also found some little storage containers for the little bits and pieces to go in.. 
That actually fit into the tool box PERFECTLY.. like they were made for it.
As well as all my leather working tools...

Also in the box were my very best favourite chocolates of all time...
white gooey coconutty almondy goodness right there.. oh Yeah.
I also got a giant box of Cadbury Favourites from a friend...mmmm...
Finally, my son loves to hand make my cards, so this is what he came up with this year.. his first attempt at a pop up card.. it is so darned cute...

I hope all Mummy's had a great mothers Day, especially to the "Super" mummy's out there who care for special needs kids. WE ROCK!
