I know most people think that their Mum is the best, but I really really think that mine rocks! She would literally do anything for me and does so most days. Over the 10 years that I moved from Acton to Highgate to Bedford to Clapham to Peckham (yes I was desperate!), to Battersea to Chiswick with a few stops in Cambridge, Mum has always been there to help lug my stuff and help me move. (One year she sliced her finger on my mirror which resulted in a trip to A&E and she was still smiling! Sorry Mum!) And that’s not all. All my friends tell me how much they love both her and my Dad which makes me feel very lucky indeed! I could go on but I’ll probably just make you jealous! I only hope that when I become a Mum I will be as generous and loving as her.
Rather than only do or buy something nice for your Mum on a day that society tells us we should, I wanted to honour my Mum just for the hell of it! Check out the gift ideas below and get orderding online – it’s so much easier (and drier with all this rain!) than trawling the shops! Plus giving makes you feel gooood!
