Hi Dave,
I think that 'because she's worth it' sentiment (along with all the Valentine hype is why there are way too many unreal expectations ~ all the way round.

Prices will go up every opportunity but in this case you cannot put a price on what mother means. Nice writing and lovely sentiment.

Belatedly, an apology. I had not realised that I had missed these comments when replying. grovel, grovel. Seemed to be a fair measure of agreement on the subject, though.
Thanks everyone.
