Every day is Mother’s Day

A Mother’s Day Treat

When my husband first met my mum, it was just before Mother’s Day.  Cheerily Mum asked him, “I hope you’ve got something special planned for your mum?”

Nick’s answer, “No I haven’t; I don’t really do it” was met with stony silence.  This was a big mistake but Nick however, quickly redeemed himself with some quick thinking.  He said sincerely, “Because I think of every day as Mother’s Day.”

It was cringy but got him out of a sticky situation and more importantly into mum’s good books. And since we have been married, my different expectation of this occasion has been drilled into him.

The small gestures, from breakfast in bed and a tidy house mean so much, but imagine waking up to these treats on Mother’s Day.  Whether you’re treating yourself or expect to be spoilt, here are some ideas to inspire you and make your Mother’s Day very special indeed.
