99 Presents

Mother's Day is just around the corner.
I got my present a little early and I'm a very lucky mummy 'cause it's a LAPTOP!!
Yeah, it was supposed to be my reward for getting under 60kgs.
I didn't get there but my husband was tired of hearing me whinge about it thought I deserved it anyway.
And my mum called today to say her present arrived in the mail.  She loved it.  It was one of these bags, practical and helping a good!
My mother-in-law is getting one, too, on Sunday.  I hope she likes it just as much.

So presents are all taken care of this year, but I like wish lists.  And I had this idea today.
Remember the 99 Things post from a little while back?
Well, I thought this might be fun...
Here's a list of 99 gift options for Mother's Day, or any day really.
