I'm time-pressed and always counting the pennies as a single-mum writer, so going out has to be worth the lipstick. It's the year of discovering tantalizing Melbourne and, sometimes, a tease of Adelaide's treasures. Join me.
How to be Mum's favourite this Mother's Day
Not sure what to do on Mother's Day, or what on earth to get Mum?
Surround her with comfort and flowers... and pot plants and homewares and giftware and, of course, breakfast or lunch. You know she deserves it (and quite possibly you do too).
Surely she'd love to have you all to herself on her special day. Poyntons of Essendon is taking bookings for breakfast 8.30-11am and lunch 11am-3pm for Mother's Day on Sunday 10 May 2015 in their riverside cafe-nursery-homewares complex.
Breakfast won't be in bed, but it will be in beautiful surrounds and might even include an opportunity for mum to select her own gift from the colourful pots or inspirational wares in this highly immersive location along the Maribyrnong River. A memorable walk along the river may even be the way you choose to top off a memorable day.
The cafe is licensed and a children's playground on site will help everyone keep smiling for Mum.
