Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday. Tell us what Mother's Day means to you and you could win a £20 Boden Voucher which you MUST spend on yourself - and that's an order.
I am not normally sentimental, and I know, thanks to Wikipedia that Mother's Day is a made up day. However for the weeks running up to Mother's Day you can't enter the supermarket or any shop in fact without being bombarded with messages about how you should be honouring and celebrating your mum. That's quite hard for me because although this year is going to be my fourth mother's day as a mother it's also my third mother's day without my own lovely mum. For me, it's a bittersweet day.
Luckily, I have my own children now and I remember that when I was a child myself, before the cynicism about the commercialised nature of mother's day kicked in, I used to love making things for my mum on mother's day and making her day special. I do think that as children get older it can be a great opportunity for them to take a proper look at the woman who they rely on so much and consider how very much she does for them on the other 364 days of the year, and do something to say thank you for that.
This competition will close on Friday 16th March.
