@benleslie5 I was not aware of that. I hope all UK Mother's had a grerat day. It 's day to remember all the sacrifices that Mother's, or Father's fulfilling the roles of Mother's , play in our lives.
First Off Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's or Mother's to be! It's your day so be sure to enjoy it. And by all means be sure those around you do for YOU today- as a Mother you do enough for others the rest of the year!
A nice brunch or buffet may be nice.Or perhaps an afternoon to just relax and do whatever you want to do-free of intrusions.
Ladies, there is also the spa appointment that you made for your Mother and yourself at a later date. Nice touch-great Mother's Day gift. Men, you can also remember that a spa session is a great gift fot your Wife, GF, or Mother. She will appreciate getting relaxed and rejuvinated more than any flowers.
Coco Chanel once said:
"A Girl should be two things-Classy and fabulous"
That was as true in 1920 as it is today. Everyone should rememebr to treat the women in life a just such--not just on Mother's day but EVERYDAY!
And speaking of classy I give you Audrey Hepburn.Quite possibly the one actress that understood that sentiment better than anyone else.
@iowastate Sounds like a great way to celebrate Mother's day! We did that last year, This year it was a new watch and food made for her. I can understand your concern about the film. But times being what they were the movie industry, and society in general, could get away with more than what they could today. I'm not defending your reference and concern,I'm just putting the times in context with the making of the film.
@jg4xchamp You have a great taste in films, my friend. Father'd day is coming fast . I'll see if I can't post some gals for the Men to enjoy!
I took my mom and sisters, and nieces and nephew out for pizza fur Mum's Day and Breakfast at Tiffany's was a great movie with one exception. The racist portrayal of the bucktooth Japanese landlord Mr. Yunioshi was almost bad enough to ruin the entire movie.
Ahh yes , my friend-- she epitomized what Classy and fabulous were and are!!!! Excellent question! Audrey was , and remains, in a class by herself! I hope that the women in your life had a Great Mother's Day. One month from now it's Dad's turn!
