I’m only asking as I’m after ideas.
I’m really lucky to only live 5 minutes away from my mum, so whenever I need bit of TLC and a natter then I pop down to see her. (I also do this when I’m in need of a sugar boos as she always has a well stocked biscuit tin and food always tastes better at ‘home’) I’m also straight down there if I need any cooking ingredients as it’s on route to the shop, but I have an unlimited and free tab there, so why waste your time parting with cash? Simples.
So that’s why I’m trying to think of something nice to do for her as without the convenience of tea, biscuits and a free rein on her cupboards, I’d be lost. The problem is my Mum is the matriarch of the family, the go-to woman and the chief organiser so when it comes to wrestling that role off her, it’s quite difficult to match. And your always the ‘kid’ when your with your Mum, so within the natural order of life, taking charge is quite difficult.
When it comes to presents, the fail safe my siblings and I resort to is a photograph of her grandchildren. As long as I can remember she has loved photo’s, both in front and behind the lens. She’s no wall flower, on a normal day she’s utterly bonkers, she loves her kids and is the perfect nanny.
I’m thinking then, for Mother’s Day this year (March 15th if you were wondering) now her grandchildren quota has plateaued, I’ll go for photo over load and a nice brunch in our favourite coffee bar, what do you think?
But you still haven’t told me, what are your plans?
