actually not so last minute as i thought when i woke up - my mum's birthday is monday (the 5th) and i need to get her something. i live in se1, she lives in Northern Ireland... so heavy or bulky items not so good. Flowers are a standby and will be deployed if necessary but i have perhaps over-used these in the past.
any suggestions from the fertile minds of my fellow posters would be very much appreciated - thanks.
Does she enjoy being pampered - aren't there now some spas/health clubs around Belfast for which you could get - think they were promoting this last time I was in NI: e.g. The Sensory at either the Belfast or Templepatrick Hiltons?
How about getting in touch with: http://www.hollywoodiscalling.com/
and have Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk) or Ken Kercheval (Cliff Barnes in Dallas) or former world heavyweight boxing champion, Larry Holmes or a whole host of z-list American "celebrities" call your Mother and wish her a happy birthday?
