How Flowers Can Get You A Free Coffee

Apparently only 9% of mums asked in a recent survey said they wanted flowers on Mother’s Day. They said they’d rather have a lie in or be taken out for a slap-up meal.

Well I’d like all three please – is that greedy?

I think flowers are underestimated sometimes. When I have some fresh blooms in a vase on my desk, I feel a bit more inspired. And they can get you free coffee too – today I was carrying a bunch of flowers while I bought a takeaway coffee. The friendly barista commented on them, and FOR SOME REASON I fibbed and told him it was my birthday. He gave me a discount and stamped my loyalty card ten times. (I know. I’m going to burn in hell, aren’t I?)

The flowers I was carrying were given to me at a lovely event held by Moonpig – showcasing their range of flowers, gifts and hampers (who knew they sold all those things? I thought they just sold cards until today…)

The flowers we saw were really beautiful and I especially loved the Breakfast in Bed hamper which as well as containing tea, coffee, orange juice, jams and Champagne, it comes complete with a mini dustpan and brush, to help you get rid of toast crumbs from the bed. I’m serious!

Now, I’m back at home, working on my laptop with some beautiful blooms to look at. Thanks Moonpig!

    I agree on the flowers. All I want is breakfast in bed. That’s it. Oh and a facial. A new bag would be nice. Oh go on then, throw in some flowers. Beautiful blooms Alison x
