I Swear That Mothers Day Is A Myth!

Mothers Day is just around the corner, what am I saying? It’s the bleeping weekend! Have I got anything planned as of yet? Errr no unless you count pulling pints behind the local bar which I am certain will be scintillating as always. Given that it will be a Sunday (as Mother’s Day always is) I can at least guarantee that I will be in good company as Ali and Duane usually pop in over the weekend which often results in much laughter.

Following my bar shift I am planning to pop in to see my Mum and to pass on a few gifts. Then all being well I will return home to spend some time with the kids watching a movie, playing a board game, maybe take the dog for a blast on the beach or whatever they fancy so long as I get to see them for a couple of hours before bedtime that’s all that matters!

What would I like for Mothers Day? Well like most Mum’s I would ideally like to have a day off to kick back and relax, spend an hour lazing in a hot bubbly bath supping Baileys from the bottle… That ain’t gonna happen!

Not only do I have to work on Sunday but luck would have it that the clocks spring forward an hour this Sunday. The clocks changing may be a triviality for those without children but let me assure you that those with children know otherwise.

I Swear That Mothers Day Is A Myth!

Mother’s UK wide will lose at least an hours rest whilst at the same time losing whatever grip they may have had upon the daily routine. Of all days for the clocks to change it would have to be blinking Mothers Day, how unfair is that?!

Anyhow, moaning aside the clocks springing forward will finally give us those extra hours of light in the evenings which means one thing – Paul needs to get the lawn mower out and fix up that quagmire of a lawn ready for us to chuck the kids out into. I need to put aside my garden makeover ideas, find and purchase a new trampoline quick smart and make do with what we have for now.

As we have a ‘child free’ evening tonight we could make a start on my fantastic plans, either that or we could grab some tea and head out to the cinema to watch ‘Beauty and the Beast’. Take a guess which option we are going with… On that note I need to do something with my face put a paper bag over it perhaps? and find something to wear that actually fits and looks semi-smart other than leggings and a top to hide the wobbly bits.

Sod it, Leggings and a floaty top it is! Nobody can see me in the cinema right?

    It could be so much worse, Rachel, mother’s day for me, is the same as any other day, as I am disabled, I will spend the day sat watching the television, as I can’t do much else, of course, I will get cards and presents from my son’s, too

    sleep was top of my list for mothers day. The clock did a good job of trying to convince me I had had an extra hours sleep… #tuesdaytreasures

    I really missed that extra hour this week, luckily my husband didn’t, he decided he needed an extra hour in bed because he has man flue. I spent Mother’s Day rushing around all day, decorating cakes for the mother-in-law and cooking the Sunday Dinner. We have ours in the evening which means most of the cooking was done while England were playing football, so I had no help at all. I could go on about all the gifts and cards I didn’t receive, my older kids were particularly horrid with my eldest having a meltdown (he’s autistic) and the other one telling off her younger siblings every five minutes.
    ah thanks, it feels good to offload, sorry it had to be here. Mother’s Day, bah humbug!

      Oh bless, I know all about the a word as we too have melt downs here from time to time. Hope you get some rest this week after caring for the fella with man flu x

    Boo to working on Mother’s Day and boo to the clocks going forward! We (by accident) ended up being Mia free over the weekend however with the clocks going forward and needing to visit my mum and then my nan, there wasn’t much relaxing going on and the day passed like any other except I got a card and some choccies which I wasn’t complaining about! 🙂

      Hope you can relax this weekend instead x

    I LIVE in leggins and a floaty top lol! It’s my signature style! Hope you had a great Mother’s day despite the work shift and probable early start x #TuesdayTreasures

      Ay leggings are my go to most days. I need to lose two or three stone and jeans may make a come back.

    I think leggings get a bad rep, I bloody love them I’m all for comfort over style. I also love joggers, embrace the wobbly bits I say ! Sorry to hear you had to work but very jealous at your child-free evening, hope you had an ace time x
