I’ve learned that Mother’s Day and “Daddy Pig” are not compatible. For my very first Mother’s Day Daddy Pig surprised me with something sentimental, timeless and precious.

Not quite the diamond eternity something something that I was hoping for, but at least… Continue reading A Mother’s Day Treat from Debenhams!
