Putting a smile on a face

Picture the scene.... You had a lovely weekend with your family and Monday came round far too quick.  You do battle too early on a morning with your pre-schooler getting him ready for nursery.  Try to explain without any success just why he has to go to nursery and Mummy and Daddy need to go to work, the never ending series of “Why?” questions for every answer you give.  Drop off at nursery results in him clinging to you like a limpet and wailing, fearing he’ll never see you again.

You arrive at work looking like you’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards because you forgot to brush your hair and only applied mascara to one eye because the monstrous pre-schooler stopped you halfway through your makeup routine demanding you wipe his bottom.

You struggle through Monday at work fuelled purely by coffee and the promise of a Gin & Tonic (or three) when you get home.

You pick your child up from nursery on the way home to more screams and cries that you’re “not Grandma” – cheers for that just can’t win!

As you pull up outside your house, every fibre of your being is hoping and praying that your little one is going to just crash to bed early so you can just sit on the sofa staring at the TV, only to start the whole process again in the morning.

But... what if... what if someone put a little something in your day that just made you realise how much you’re appreciated.  What if you could walk into your house and see something which just breaks through all the tears, the tantrums and instantly makes you smile?

I was recently asked by Prestige Flowers to review their flowers.  I received a delivery of flowers from their Anniversary range which came in a protective box.  I don’t know who was more excited to see the box, O, or me!  

We opened the box and lifted out the flowers.
To our surprise the delivery also included a vase to hold the flowers (which was just the right size), and a small box of truffles.  The truffles were to die for, even if I had to share them with O!

Instructions for looking after the flowers were easy to understand and included food for the flowers to help them last.  

A week later the flowers were still beautiful.  They lasted a full two weeks before we sadly needed to say goodbye to them.

These particular flowers are currently £25 on and represent fantastic value for money for someone important in your life.  They certainly brought sjoy to our lives, and relieved the Monday blues of a zombie a working mum.
