If you’re having Mother’s Day problems…

…we feel bad for you son. We’ve got 99 problems, and they’re all to do with Mother’s Day, actually.

Are you sweating? Is it hot in here?

Or has the temp fired up because Mother’s Day is coming for you and that Colin the Caterpillar cake you grabbed out of the work fridge isn’t the one?

Probably that.

Lucky for you lot we’re live-at-homers, confirmed last minute Larry merchants.

“Maybe the Mum in your life might like: Space and time, silence or… more silence?”

But first up here’s what not to do:

  • Panic buy a dog
  • Repaint a wall in Mum’s favourite colour
  • Showing off your chest with a new I LUV U MUM tattoo sprayed across it
  • Mum-based haikus
  • Singing for / at Mum

Maybe the Mum in your life might like:

  • A framed picture of a priceless family moment
  • Space and time
  • Silence
  • More silence
  • Alcohol

Some of the above can be brought together to make for an even more immersive experience for the Boss.

Anyway, a few thought starters there, to get those creative juices flowing. Look, let’s be real: it’s going to come down to the wire.

Godspeed. And good luck.
