I compare Mother’s Day to Easter. There is so much hype and excitement in the air! I was lucky enough to go back to my home-town and spend Mother’s Day with the whole family – a treat for all of us and mum was over the moon that we were all in the one place at the one time.
I hope everyone got just as spoilt? An article in the Sun Herald predicted so. Figures from IBISWorld show that Aussie’s will spend $1.3 Billion on their mothers this year. Twenty per cent of that spending will go to taking mum out for dinner as a treat.
Other favourites were Flowers, luxury chocolates, jewellery and gift certificates.
