This is our run down of 10 of our lovely Mother's Day gifts, something for every Mum!

And if anyone deserves one of these Mother's Day gifts...or indeed a medal, it's my mum...

I have a vivid memory of me, as a small, blonde haired child, lying with my face buried in my duvet, chubby arms thrown over head.  The high pitch blood-curdling screams that I forced out until my breath ran out had left me red faced and sliced through the thin walls of our terrace house leaving the hairs on my neighbour’s arms standing on end.

I grew tired and quietly whimpered to myself, heart heavy with the deep well of my sorrow.

After a time my mother came in to my room.  She gathered me in her arms, and gently rocked me back and forth as she whispered “There there, you are allll right, it’s okay, ssh ssh sssssh”.  I felt warm and safe.

With tears still glistening on my cheeks, I looked into my mum’s eyes and asked, hopefully, “Now can I have the crisps AND the biscuit?”



My mum.  Heart of a Lion.  She never gave in, I never did get crisps and a biscuit…and I think she definitely deserves that medal (or at least a card) and a day to commemorate her flippin’ strength and brilliance…

So roll on Mother’s Day.
