A Special Day for your mother? Give her what she likes.
If she wants to watch a sports match on television, let her.
If she wants to have a tea cake and a cup of tea, let her.
She might want to stay at home and eat the things she likes. Join her and forget about going out.
Try outings to the cinema, park, museum, theatre, ballet, garden centre, shopping, gardens, country house or castle.

Try meals at a restaurant, bar/pub, hotel or a take away.
Try gifts like a hamper, pot plant, a picture, flowers, a scarf, gloves, perfume, jewellery, knitwear or slippers.
Grandchildren can make cards, drawings and craft items.
Discuss your plans with her first and prevent disappointment. Save your money and your time.
My mother and mother in law loved joining the family for a special meal at our home.
