Mother’s Day is a bit like a bit like Valentine’s Day in the sense that it’s become a marketer’s dream and you could use the argument that you shouldn’t only choose one day of the year to celebrate the ones you love. That said, just like birthdays, it’s always wonderful to especially spoil loved ones on their special day(s) of the year, so it’s great to use any excuse you can to treat them and make an effort to tell them just how much they mean to you.
I’ve always tried to make Mother’s Day special for my Mum in my own way. As a young kid I remember taking it upon myself to bake something for my Mum on her special day (always loved baking, see), although I can’t remember if it was a cheesecake, apple crumble or jam tarts. However, I ended up getting shouted at by her for making a mess of the kitchen. Well, the thought was there!
This year, Mother’s Day weekend has so far consisted of afternoon tea on Saturday and then a meal with the family in our new home today, on Mothering Sunday.
So, to my Mum, I just want to tell you how much you mean to me. Even though we can occasionally drive each other mad and even though I can still behave like a petulant child in your company at times, you are also a wonderful friend and we have so much fun together. Even my friends often remind me of how much fun you are, which always makes me smile!
You’ve supported me through thick and thin. I don’t know where I’d be or what I’d do without you and I try not to think too hard about the latter.
I’m looking forward to our family weekend away together next weekend, and to many happy times to come. Love you millions, always.
