Spring is springing which can only mean one thing – little lambs! OK, little lambs and Mother’s Day
If you are lost for ideas or need some inspiration then look no further. I hope there is something for everyone.
First up, my personal favourite is a bunch of spring flowers. I absolutely love them and am more than happy with a bunch of supermarket daffodils, or picked from the garden, and a home made card. If money is tight then that is absolutely enough for me.
There are a few competitions dotted through the guide but you can also find them all in one place here www.theincidentalparent.com/competitions

For the book worm
Here are three very different books.
is kind of a self help book from Carol Stewart who is a highly regarded Women’s business coach. It shows how you can lead with influence and impact as an introverted woman – something I really need to get to grips with. RRP £14.99 also available from Amazon via this affiliate link
An Author on Trial – the story of a forgotten writer
is Luciano Iorio’s account of his father, Guiseppe Jurio’s trials in post war Italy following publication of his book Il Fuoco del Mondo, The Fire of the World and found guilty of writing an obscene novel. This book revels how bigoted judges in alignment with the illiberal and agressive censorship policies adopted by the ruling Christian Democracy Party, openly fuelled by the Vatican, were determined to make an example of Guiseppe Jorio, even if that meant to misapply the law.
I’m fascinated by miscarriages of justice so look forward to reading this myself.
RRP £8.99 and availble from Amazon via this affiliate link
by Nikki Valance is
is a relationship mystery, which portrays the impact of a shared life-changing dilemma on four seemingly unconnected lives. It follows a cast of strong women in their forties whose lives are disrupted by an extraordinary event, and explores the common experiences and dilemmas of ordinary women, who might be questioning the paths they have chosen. A book with many twists and turns, it is a mystery within a mystery.
Personally I love a mystery so, after my mum has read it, I will be asking for it back!

Here’s how Tile works – ring it when you’ve misplaced something, if it’s close by, and if you fear you’ve left your belonging further away, check where your item was last seen on a map. This allows you to tap into Tile’s community, the world’s largest lost-and-found network, which will anonymously help find the lost or stolen item almost anywhere in the world. You can even use Tile in reverse to call your phone – even when it’s on silent.
