Mother's Day Suggestion #2
Due to the pandemic, travelling overseas is not as easy to organise. The answer is: staycation! Whisk mum for a weekend away in a nice hotel for her to enjoy life away from her usual routine. It is a great opportunity for you and mum to spend some quality time together. She can enjoy a swim, enjoy the scenery and be in total holiday mood! Please remember, if you are bringing the whole family, she should not be babysitting your kids during this staycay!
