Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend and need to get my mom a bit of a present.
She is a good girl and deserve something special even if just for putting out with me for the rest of the year!
I wasn’t too sure what to get her but when speaking about it to a friend the other day she suggested I get something that would remind is both when I was younger.
I thought for a while and had the idea of getting a cauliflower for her.
When I was a youngster, perhaps only eight or nine years old, are wanted to help my mom out of the kitchen. She gave me a special job (well, I thought it was special) and that job was cutting up the leaves of the cauliflower. Here is me, all eager and willing to help with the very blunt knife in my hand chopping up the leaves and being all proud to help my mum.
It wasn’t for many many years I realise that you don’t actually eat the leaves of cauliflowers and she just gave me the task to keep me quiet and out of the way.
I can chuckle about it now is it such a good idea to entertain a young boy but really, I can’t give my mom a cauliflower for mother’s day and it’s not just because it would be hard to giftwrap it!
Second choice would be to find a nice piece of jewellery for her. She’s always liked silver pieces as it goes well with skin colour and I think having a piece with Amber set into it would make a nice change for her. Amber is not a choice that she would naturally go for and while it will be a gamble me getting it for her as a gift, I think it’s something I should do.
Have a great day all you mothers out there and I hope you get spoilt rotten and don’t have to do things like chop up cauliflower leaves for the whole day.
