The Mother's Day advertising is in full-swing. Obviously, I can't speak for all mums, but if I'm not good enough for a bottle of Schweppes tonic water, then don't bother. I hope no one takes the sign literally and buys *all* of it for their mother.
Did I mention how stupidly cold it is here? Well, it IS. I look more dressed for autumn than spring, but Mother Nature is not cooperating this year.
