There’s no one quite like Mum – is there? She’s always there when you need her and if she isn’t you know she would be if she could. Now, don’t get me wrong, she’s also always there when you don’t want her to be too (although that was more as a teen – when you didn’t want to be around anyone, let along an ‘oldie’).
With Mother’s Day only days away, it’s time to get mushy with greeting cards (courtesy of M&S, obvs), spend a fortune on marked up flowers (damn you consumerism), and find the perfect present to show you care – and what better way to say thanks Mum than with some TLC and pampering? Nope, that’s pretty much the best present any women can have – and don’t forget she may be your Mum but she is also a women.
