    UK: Mothering Sunday

    Just a reminder to all our Brit members that today is Mothering Sunday (aka Mother's day).


    Go on, give her a call if you can (just watch the time difference or you may get an earful).

    you're a good un Nid, take no notice of your mom, the clocks went forward last night

    mine passed years ago unfortunately and much too young. Beautiful woman inside and out, she always wanted a little girl, my dad gave her 4 boys, those boys gave her 3 more boys before she passed. I have 2 girls though, one named after her and I can see my mom in both of them

    look after your mom, you only get one.

    As a runner I wish her well. Knees are important.

    My parents moved to a small market town UK some years ago so not sure if they are up to date with National days but as I have to call to get an advance on my inheritance i will speak to my mother first.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?

    Glad to have helped. Its difficult to remember for us as the day is different here. I admit I normally forget, but was in UK a couple of days ago and saw it was coming. Left a few goodies around the house for the old girl.

    Taking Mary to London on Mothering Sunday, going to lay a bouquet of flowers at Westminster bridge to remember the Mothers who lost their children.
    It's showing the spirit of the Blitz, the stoic strength of My English Rose Mary. They cannot cower us Brits .

    Then lunch at Coventry St at the "Budda Gump Shrimp Co" with head chef Forest.

    Christ, what a load of mawkish old cobblers. Mothering Sunday is a contrived event, a bogus commemoration founded on celebrating mother church within christian liturgy that was hijacked in America for dreary sentimental reasons now capitalised by card companies, florists and restaurants.

    Respecting motherhood on this day as some bullshit consolation for months of neglect is pitiful and utterly hypocritical.

    Still, you're a kunt if you don't.

    A simple Facebook message will suffice.

    Amazingly, I agree with Mr Asylum. I remember my mother every day and don't need to be told what to do by dopey, soppy twats who think they know best.

    Gotta dip me hand in me cheepy Charlie wallet to purchase flowers, will the shop give discount for flowers on Westminster bridge, Mother's Day flowers are sooo overpriced therefore I want the daily rate, not triple price.
    If they don't give me discount then I will go to the local cemetery, there's plenty of fresh free flowers on Mothers Day.

    It would be nice if a portion of the forum could be set aside for the more intelligent members.

    One must presume you were given up at birth, maybe to the Catholic church by any chance?

    Bile? Where is the bile? I am merely denigrating your sappy, sentimental affectations and making mock.

    No need to get all snippy.

    Don't tell me you're a Father's Day wanker too?

    Now, that really is a piece of mawkish shit.

    As an Antipodean, "Mothering" sounded rather coarse to my ears. Glad it was all about celebration of actual mothering.
