Most of you know, my papa passed away around 7/8 years ago. Since then, my siblings have married, settled down and now all have kids (alhumdulilah). It means my mum and I spend A LOT of time together, and I think it honestly makes me appreciate her a lot.
My mum has been my strength and motivation for everything I do, when I feel stressed about uni or essays I think of how proud my mum is of me and how hard she knows that I can work, so I keep that in my mind always.
My dad was my best friend and me and my siblings had an amazing relationship with him. That relationship and friendship has continued though to my mum. She is not only my mum, she has taken the form of my dad, and my best friend and I can’t thank her enough for everything I have. I’m not embarrassed or afraid to say that my mum is my best friend (my ‘girlfriend’!) and I would do anything for her.
When mother’s day was approaching, I was just planning to do the usual flowers and chocolates present that we always do. But then I decided that I should spoil her a bit more, even though she loves the flowers and eats the chocolates with a massive smile on her face. I thought this year I wanted to definitely spoil her a lot.
I went on Spa Breaks and ended up finding amazing deals near us for an overnight stay at a luxury hotel and spa. I thought this would be a perfect way to celebrate mothers day and she definitely deserves a break and a relaxation!
After a quick search and a few emails back and forth to the lovely Rae at Spa Breaks, I ended up booking a deal for an overnight stay at Mottram Hall, Cheshire which includes a 60 minute spa treatment of our choice and full use of the spa facilities as well as breakfast, dinner and lunch included! The package was honestly perfect and was tailored to our needs and I think it was an amazing trip.
Here are a few pictures from our trip:
