Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday really confirms the start of Spring doesn’t it? The clocks are going forward this weekend and I just can’t wait for that extra hour of light in the evenings. For parents this is definitely the best way the clocks move and we get an extra hour of sleep - rather than loosing an hour as we do in the autumn when the little ones didn’t get the memo!!

Mothering Sunday isn’t something we go nuts for in my family with heaps of pressies, but just little treats and acknowledgement of the special lady. We are planning a family roast at my sister’s house - last year my mum was poorly so hoping to spoil her a little more this year.

I’m not expecting any lavish treats either - as Sophie is still only little it will all fall on my husbands shoulders - so a lovely card and tea in bed with my little family will be just perfect - and maybe a bunch of my favourite blooms!

If you are looking for some little pressies to bestow on your mum, little beauty goodies are always popular with mine (and me!) a special perfume, or some new makeup always go down well. Little luxuries that they wouldn't treat themself too are always the best gift. A white leather makeup bag is a total indulgence as are a multiwick candle. I'm a little obsessed with The White Company - and their gift wrapping is beautiful too - so I know I can always find a winning pressie in this store.

If you are going for a bigger gift, a bright seasonal accessory such as this bright blue bucket bag from Boden would be IDEAL. Mum’s always carry a million and one essentials around with them, and this gives PLENTY of room to store them all. I’m just obsessed with the colour too!

So whatever your plans for Mothering Sunday, Enjoy x
