It is Mother's Day again, and once more it is a timely reminder of just how important it is to celebrate Mum for being who she is.
Many see Mother's Day as a cynical marketing ploy to rake in the dollars, but if you shift the focus, it is an opportunity to celebrate mum. Because without her the many many things that you think the invisible fairies do - cleaning out the hamster cage because you 'forgot', magically finding and matching up your favourite socks, doubling up as taxi driver and, most of all, being naggy, bossy, lovely mum, would never happen and then where would you be?
And once you become a mum yourself, you get to appreciate how nice it is to be appreciated - whether 'surprised' by a cup of tea in bed and home made cards and wobbly cake - or being treated to a full on lunch WITH NO WASHING UP TO DO!
So, amongst the many, many lovely Mother's Day Treats - here are a few: The Wynnstay has a rather lovely Mother's Day Menu, as well as a pamper day. Lion Quays are having a Mother's Month - with a special Spa Treatment Day running to the end of April.
For something more holistic (and for those who need some relaxing massage but wouldn't want the bells and whistles) why not get vouchers from Time for You - with their soothing range of therapies?
If your mum just loves being at home, with the family, then a little 'special' present of perhaps, a lovely handpainted mug (by you) might brighten that breakfast tray that you intend to take up......
The world moves so fast, you think you have time to show her how much she means, and then its too late - so don't prevaricate, don't haver, don't moan - get on with it!
In the words of the inimitable Mr T -
" She's a Queen, Second to none, take care of Mother You only get one.
