I don’t do the whole ritual for Mother’s Day, of the kids getting me breakfast in bed etc. We used to do it for my Mum when I was still living with my parents though. My kids did it a couple of times when they were little, but it’s just not that big a deal for me. I enjoy getting a present, of course – I’m well chuffed with my complete set of Hornblower DVDs. (Thinks: what would a cage-wrestling match between JDF and the Ioan would be like?) But I prefer to have a fuss made over lunch than over breakfast, and we usually do an intergenerational thing here, and meet up with my mum at lunchtime.
What do other Hoydenizens do for Mother’s Day – for your own mums if you’re not a mother yourself?
