Valentine’s is out of the way for another year. Now it’s time to show mum how much you love her, because Sunday 6th March is Mother’s Day. Cue flowers, chocolates, a spa voucher – in fact anything that’s left over from Valentine’s Day (but not the card, obviously). There’s no better way to show her how much you appreciate her than by giving her the day off and taking her out for a meal. And as Mother’s Day falls on a Sunday again this year – isn’t it funny how it always does? – what about a good old fashioned Sunday roast or maybe afternoon tea. And as it’s a special day, why not throw in a glass or two of something fizzy.
But don’t overdo it. We don’t want her dancing on the table, do we?
