Celebrate Mother’s Day With A Glow


One thing is certain, and that is when us Mothers celebrate Mother’s Day, it makes our hearts glow.  I am the mother of the 4 most amazing children, and I love nothing more than enjoying my Mother’s Day surrounded by my family.

At this time of the year, wherever we look, we see Mother’s Day promotions, and ideas. I am never sure what my family will be treating me to on Mother’s Day.  I sometimes think of all things that I would love to do.  I know in my heart of hearts, whatever we do will be precious to me, and bring a glow to my heart.

My list usually starts with “if only”? And ends with what I really would love to do.

The Heartfelt Gifting Solution
  • If only I had all the money in the world, I would choose to go on a helicopter trip, and picnic on a Game farm.
  • If I was in France, we would wear our whites, and settle down at my favourite restaurant, Cinqaunte-Cinq for lunch.
  • If I had an unlimited budget, we would go shopping for brand new winter wardrobes.
  • If I had the time, we would head off to a health spa, and have a day of uninterrupted massages, and treatments.
  • If I was in Mauritius, we would relax on the beach, drinking decadent cocktails.
  • If my family wanted to truly indulge me, they would buy me some diamond jewellery, or a new Cartier watch.

Enough of this now!!!

To be honest, even if I had all of the above available to me, I know exactly what I am choosing to do.  At this time of the year, it is usually raining, and chilly in Cape Town.

  • My day will begin with hugs and kisses.
  • We will ensure that our whole family is at home.
  • We will have a roaring, warm fire glowing.
  • We will eat a delicious oxtail stew.
  • We will drink our favourite red wine.
  • We will sit around and chat, and catch up on all our news.

After lunch

  • We will choose a comedy on TV to watch.
  • We will pour ourselves a freshly brewed cup of our favourite herbal tea.
  • We will lie on the couch.
  • To top it all off:  The cherry on the top, or should I say “chocolate” on the top will be, to eat a whole box of Cadbury Glow chocolates.

I am a self confessed chocoholic, and love nothing more that indulging in a box of chocolates.  So I am saving my delicious box of Cadbury Glow Chocolates for Mother’s Day next Sunday.

    My mom loves all things Turkish, so if I had an unlimited budget the first thing I would do is book first class tickets to Turkey for myself, my mom and my sister. It would be a trip that we would cherish forever. We will check into an amazing 5 star hotel and live in the lap of luxury for a few days and indulge in gourmet Turkish cuisine. We will tour the magical city of Istanbul and admire the magnificent Blue Mosque, Hippodrome and Haga Sophia. We will shop till we drop in the world famous Istiklal street. We will visit a Turkish Hammam and be pampered from head to toe. Then indulge in more baklava and Turkish Delight. My mom loves cooking with her spices so we will visit the Spice Bazaar and let her soak in the aromas of the delicious spices and purchase spices to her hearts content. We will also embark on a Bosphorus cruise while sipping on Turkish tea. We will then jet off to Cappadocia and take a hot air balloon ride over the rolling magnificent hills. After an amazing but glorious holiday we will await our first class flight in the first class lounge (obviously) before embarking on our journey home and returning to our beds which we missed so dearly 🙂 ahhh if only wishes like this came true!!

      HI Aneesa
      Wow, this all sounds amazing, and I have to say that baklava is by far my favourite desert. You never know. Miracles do happen. Please take me with you!

    My mom has always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon (I know, unexpected right?) so I would grant her that wish.

      Hi Belinda
      That is so cool. I have never been in a hot air balloon, and it must be amazing
      Enjoy, and send us some pics

      HI Vanessa
      I am so sorry to hear that your Mum is so ill. It is really tough. Our Mum passed away a few years ago, and not a day goes by when I dont miss her
