“Mums are like buttons—they hold everything together” – unknown
I love Mother’s Day not only is it a time to celebrate women but I get to spend a lovely day with my mum. Last year we had a lovely day at Patisserie Valerie were we had afternoon tea, which was delicious. But this year we are both doing Slimming World so cream cakes and scones are out of the question.
I am going to do a homemade afternoon tea with healthier options and its nice to spend a bit of quality time with my mum. When you are younger I think, well I know I did you take your mum for granted. So I thought it would be a nice idea to interview my mum to find out a bit more about her because I know she would love to have done this with her mum (sadly her mum passed away before I was born). That’s also why I like to spend as much quality time with her as I can and make wonderful memories.
So here it goes,
Question 1 – How did you meet my dad?
At a pub in Liverpool called Charlie’s Bar – which has now closed down.
Question 2 – What is the most rebellious thing you did in school?
Bunked a lesson in primary school – tut tut mother!
Question 3 – What is the one thing you wish you would of done before you had children?
Gone on a girls only holiday abroad – This is something my mum has told me since I was younger and I made sure I did.
Question 4 – What is the one thing about our relationship you wish you could change?
Nothing its perfect the way it is – Rrrr that’s cute!
Question 5 – What question do you wish you could ask you mum?
What was I like as a child?
Question 6 – If you had all the money in the world what would you do with it?
Go on a family holiday abroad – somewhere nice and hot!

Hardest, Worrying if your kids are ok. Best, Loving them.
Question 8 – What was your dream job when you were younger?

Question 13 – What was your life like before you had children?
Partying every weekend – fat chance of that once you have children.
Question 14 – What is your favourite memory of me as a child?
Playing hairdressers together – I think mum enjoyed this more than me.
Also how cute is this baby grow that was sent to us from Teether. The material is so soft and really good quality. They do a lovely range of personalised clothing so definitely check them out. Alfie will definitely be wearing this on Mother’s Day.
What are your plans with your mum this year?
