I chose my first post to be on Mothers day because it is a gift to all the mothers and mother-going-to-be out there!..its still Mothers day today in the US 🙂
Mothers Day over time has diverted from just having a simple dinner as a family at home to showering Mums with expensive gifts, flowers and go to fancy restaurants. I mean this is great. However, I disagree with how much marketing is going on in the background.
What did you guys do for your mum on Mothers day?
In the past year, I have always purchased something for my mum. However, this year I have decided to do something different…that is, taking her out for dinner.
I have learnt that:
- Do not go out on the weekend of Mother’s day..the WORSE mistake. It is packed everywhere, everyone is angry on the road and everybody is pushy if you are trying to get into a restaurant
- Prices go up by double in a restaurant. Not the actual price itself, but the quality and quantity of food just decreases dramatically.
- Every day is Mothers day, so let celebrate a week before or a week after 🙂
Do share some of your worse and the best experiences on Mothers day! We might have something in common.
Ciao for now :]
