We all like to think of good, interesting and reasonably priced gifts for our mums on Mothering Sunday – that joy is looming fast. I see the adverts for perfumery products, toiletries, nightware, kitchenware . . . . quite often I’ve scored a success with my own choices – but they are strictly contained within the floral category. To me, mothering sunday goes back to the bible and celebrates the wonderful kind and fulfilling role that motherhood brings. Obviously for those unable to bear their own fruit, it is a painful time. I find the constant barage of advertising for this event and say, Valentine’s day to be just frantic jumping on the commercial bandwagon and I happily ignore it all. I know the sites that provide me with the kind of gifts I want to give for each particular member of my family and the relevant event being celebrated. I have now got it sussed, and long may this continue !
