Flowers are lovely and chocolates are a delight, but another great way to treat your mum this weekend is to give her car the once over from the tyres to the windscreen wiper wash!
Check the tyres pressure, give it a shampoo, wax and a quick vacuum inside and she’ll be really chuffed at your thoughtfulness this Mothers Day (that’s tomorrow incase you have forgotten!).
The chances are your mum is always charging round on the school run, loading up the supermarket shopping, wiping muddy football boot marks off the seat with her sleeve, whilst often juggling a busy job.
Frankly, checking her tyre pressure and giving the car a good clean are way down on her priority list.
Even topping up windscreen wash can be a job that falls off the to-do list (I speak from personal experience here, having gone two weeks sloshing a bottle of mineral water over my own windscreen, because I kept forgetting to top it up).
Sometimes it’s not about spending loads of money, it’s the thought or time that goes into showing her you care that really counts!
