With Mother’s Day just around the corner I always have mixed feelings. On the one hand I am very blessed to be a mum myself to 4 beautiful children and I love how they make me feel extra special and appreciated on Mother’s Day. On the other hand it makes me miss my own mother, who lives all the way across the oceans in The Netherlands, terribly. Since moving to Australia in 2006 I have not been able to spend a single Mother’s Day with her and all we can give her is a phone call and a card in the mail.
If you are lucky enough to live close to your parents please take some time out of your busy schedule to visit them on Mother’s Day, how wonderful that you can just show up on her doorstep with a little present and make her day! And don’t forget to take a snap of the two of you together, you never know when you get that chance again every time I say goodbye to my mum I wish we took more photos.
If you, like me, live too away to drop by personally you can still make mum feel really loved from a distance by sending her some handmade goodness made by the kids, recording her a cute video or having a sweet gift delivered to her door.
Thanks to Fresh Flowers it is super duper easy to organise flower delivery online in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane. Unfortunately Sunday delivery is not available, but for many areas same day delivery is possible so get that Saturday order in as soon as you can. Make sure you sign up as a Fresh Flower member because you will be rewarded with a welcome 10% discount on your first order, that’s some extra change in your pocket for a lovely card to go with the gift.
If you will be spoiling your mother, grandmother or mother-in-law with a pretty bunch of flowers this Mother’s Day I would love to know what you’ll be getting her. What are your mum’s favourite flowers? If anyone wants to treat me to a little bouquet my vote goes to… Dutch tulips of course!
