In the hours leading up to Mother’s day there often seems to be a frantic, guilt-ridden supermarket sweep-style shop, only for us mums to end up with a garage-bought card and some wilted flowers. Well, that certainly seems to be the case in our households (not that we don’t love the sentiment – brown-tinged pansies scream ‘best mum ever’, right?)
We reckon there’s absolutely nothing wrong with dropping non-subtle hints or blatantly asking for a well-deserved little treat. We’ve mastered the art of nurturing small children, after all (no mean feat). Failing that, you could always just spoil yourself and your own mama.
