Mother’s Day

Last Sunday was Mother’s Day in Australia. I’m not sure if that’s the same around the world, but I have a feeling our dates might differ? Anyway, last Sunday is was the turn for mum’s in Oz to be spoilt.

The Hub and I are probably a little different in our approach to most people. We’ve tried to instill in our Barbarians that it is more important to be loving to each other every day and do little things just because, rather than feel the need to focus on one day.

We also have been very forceful in our belief that no money should be spent. It’s about the actions, not the dollars, that makes the day special.

My gorgeous Barbarians did exactly that – I couldn’t have asked for a better mother’s day. I had an almost permanently full tea cup and they cooked me the yummiest shepherd’s pie for dinner. And throughout the day they checked in to see if there was anything I needed done.

How do you (or have you) celebrate/d mother’s day – either for yourself or your mum?

  1. I like your focus. It’s annoying how often money is equated with ‘doing something’.

    • Me too, Jacqui. It’s easy to just throw money at something, but I think it means more when there is some effort and thought behind it.

  2. Sounds like a lovely day. My relationship with my mother… Well, let’s not go there. The gift card I sent (which I ordered well before) arrived today. Sigh.

  3. It was Mother’s Day here, too. Happy belated one!

  4. My kids brush my hair for Mothers Day, which was also last Sunday. I LOVE having my hair brushed!

    • My grandmother used to get my mum to brush her hair (100 strokes) for her birthday. I love a scalp masage so I guess that’s the same sort of thing.

  5. Wow, it’s been a week since! I had a nice day. I didn’t want gifts either; I’d rather spend that money on flowers for my outdoor pots, which is what I did. Oh, and I got a few nice chocolates, too.
