mother's day : to do

posted on: Tuesday, May 7, 2013

More the doing type than the gifting type? Here a five fun things you might like to do with your mum or treat yourself to:

1. Catch a movie. Have you seen First Position? I loved it.

2. See a play. True Minds by Joanna Murray-Smith and The Melbourne Theatre Company is on now for Melbournians, it sounds hilarious.

3. Pack a picnic for the park. A classic.

4. Go to the balletSymmetries by The Australian Ballet will be playing soon at the Canberra Theatre Centre if you're in the capitol.

5. How can you go wrong with a lovely coffee date catch up?

Myself, I'm waiting until next month and going to the ballet with my mum and the kiddo for a belated celebration -- I can't wait! This weekend I think I'll be studying.

What would your ideal Mother's Day treat be? A day alone in bed perhaps? I'd love to hear!

  1. Coffee for one please!
    And plenty of time to drink it!

    I would love to start the day with a sleep in but it would never work...the entire family would end up in bed! And I bet I would be the first one to get out!

    1. ha ha. oh, I hope you get a little sleep in. Or at least the coffee!

  2. MIne would be lying in a lovely room overlooking a lawn down to the beach where my five all play happily- no bickering!- and my husband keeps them there so I can finally finish my book. Did I mention it would be catered with a nice quiet waiter bringing me coffee and croissants as needed?

    1. I will actually be negotiating taking my five (probably bickering)- to one of their football matches across the city whilst the husband is mountaineering in Victoria. Alternate universes?

    2. you are a saint annie!
      like I said, I will be studying. luckily I like studying, but your first idea with the room sounds better. I'll take one of those too please!

  3. I would love six hours sleep in a row (eight is just plain greedy) and for someone to do all of the boring stuff for me for the whole day. Boring stuff includes: housework, picking up other people's stuff, deciding on what to feed everyone and then cooking it and so on.
