Mothering Sunday is the perfect time to show your Mam how much she means to you. A mother’s work is never done so why not treat her to a fantastic day of luxury. Mothering Sunday unlike the American tradition of Mother’s Day has its roots in the Church. As a result of the American influence Mother’s Day is now a day to show appreciation to your Mother and everything she does.
Pampering your Mam is the least you can do on the 10th of the month. Why not give her a day to remember. Breakfast in bed is always a good idea to start the day. Take some time to make something special. Poached eggs with smoked salmon would be a luxurious morning treat for a deserving mother. Try to make the whole day an experience they will never forget by showing your Mam how much you care.
