Welcome to another week here at The Lounge. This week the theme is all about Mother’s Day. So settle in, grab a drink and share your posts below!
As the big day, that is Mother’s Day for those of you living under a rock, approaches the catalogues and businesses have started their special ideas for a present for the Mum in your life. There is a massive range of things from appliances to chocolate and even sex toys, because that wouldn’t be an awkward present at all! All of them scream that they have the perfect present for your mum, just empty out your pockets and she’ll be happy.
I love receiving presents, but around here they are less than inspired because it’s usually me who goes out and buys them! I however draw the line at wrapping it myself so I make Paul and Mr 4 go and get a card and at least a gift bag to put it all in.
This year I have been wracking my brain trying to think of something that my heart desires but I keep coming up empty. I’m not one of those mums who insists that you can’t buy appliances, as long as it’s not an iron or vacuum cleaner! For Christmas a couple of years ago I asked Paul to buy me a set of pots and pans, and the previous year a food processor. I just don’t see the point in buying something that I am not going to use.
If money was absolutely no object, I would love to go away for the weekend. Somewhere warm where I can enjoy the beach and just relax…I might even take Paul and Mr 4 along with me 😉 I have visions of pure white sand, clear ocean lapping the stilts of the bungalow. Cocktail anyone? Mother’s Day itself, I would love to spend the day curled up under a blanket with a book. Then lunch in a little hideaway looking over the ocean with fresh fruit, seafood and decadent desserts.
Unfortunately that’s not really on the cards so we are compromising with a picnic at the beach, where the weather is a little more on the cold side but the views will still be pretty awesome. There really is something about the beach that just refreshes me and calms my nerves.
What are you doing with your family for Mother’s Day this year?
