The only love that I truly believe in is a mother’s love for her children.
Mothers’ Day celebrations started early at Big D’s nursery, with a heartfelt singsong and thanksgiving by half-a-dozen little darlings, doing a wonderful job remembering their choreography.
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as they ended their chorus by belting out in unison, “I Love You Mummy”! It’s amazing how our children can touch us so deeply – their genuine love and innocence is just the most amazing gift a mummy can receive on Mothers’ Day.
Daddy B always does his best to make Mothers’ Day special and likes to make a big fuss – a beautiful lie in and coming downstairs to a wonderfully laid table, daffodils, fresh croissants, coffee and juice…Dreamy!
Usually the day is spent with my mother too and all the family. With the little ones, I find it easier to be in the home en masse, this way we are in control and can fit nap times around eating and, with a bit of luck, everyone remains on glittering form. I love entertaining, so everyone comes over to celebrate. A lovely lamb roast + a cheeky glass of vino + lashings of pudding = my perfect Mothering Sunday.
If you’re thinking of what to buy your mummy for Mothers’ Day, here are my top 5 personal faves:
- Wick & Tallow Candle, £35. The Sweet Pea and Peony is divine.
- Monica Vinader Ziggy Mini Petal Pendant, £40. Can be bought separately or with a chain. They have a great in-house engraving service perfect for adding your beloved children’s initials.
- Rococo Organic Milk Chocolate Rose Wafers, £14.50. This delicately perfumed luxurious chocolate is a wonderful treat for any chocoholic – just don’t expect them to be shared!
- Cowshed Facial, £75. The ideal way to pamper any deserving mummy.
- Becksondergaard K-Dot & Flowers scarf in neon pink, £33. I purchased this for my own mummy to brighten up her wardrobe ready for Spring.
