Mother’s Day is a little tough in my house sometimes. I lost Mum eight years ago but I still miss her terribly. And of course, to add to the equation, this year I’m single. My boys, however, always lift my spirits and I’m sure tomorrow will be just fine. Even if I have to cook dinner myself. I know, right! Bloody liberty.
However, I was sent a lovely gift earlier in the week which I’ve sneakily opened early and it’s cheered me up no end. It’s a small basket which contains:
Lemon & lavender marmalade
Lavender & champagne truffles
Lavender bath & shower gel
Lavender & olive oil body lotion
Lavender bath creamer
I checked out their website and I think a lot of my readers would love this place because not only can you purchase these goodies online, as well as a whole array of other luxurious items, you can also stay there! It’s a gorgeous thatched cottage in Hampshire, near Winchester, complete with a swimming pool! To be honest, had I thought about it earlier, staying there for a couple of days would have been perfect for Mother’s Day. A lovely roam around the gardens followed by a G&T in the conservatory – bliss.
But thanks Riverside Lifestyle … you’ve made the eve of a tough day a little easier.
