Our Mam’s Day Memories


Our mams all deserve a day dedicated to them  and, this year, 30th March is their day.

For a lot of us, our mams (and dads) are the biggest part of growing up. They’re the ones who tell us off, show us right from wrong, pick us up when we’re down and teach us the words of wisdom passed down from their own mams and dads.

Here are some of the words of wisdom and rebukes I remember from my childhood…

  • Because I said So
  • Because I’m your Mother, that’s why
  • Empty vessels make the most noise
  • Yes I AM the boss of you
  • After all the things I’ve done for you
  • I’ve got eyes in the back of my head, that’s how
  • Who is “SHE”, the cat’s mother?
  • Waste not, want not
  • I don’t care who started it – I’m finishing it!
  • What did your last servant die of?
  • If I talked to my Mother like you talk to me…
  • You’ll thank me later
  • I’ll wipe that smirk off your face
  • If you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all
  • Just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t make it right
  • Just you wait until you have kids of your own then you’ll understand
  • Money does not grow on trees
  • Bored! How can you be bored? I was never bored at your age
  • Be careful what you wish for it might come true
  • You only need three of anything, one on, one in the wash and one in the drawer
  • If a job’s worth doing it’s worth doing well
  • There are plenty more fish in the sea
  • Here let me do it.

We hope you like our range of cards, mugs, coasters, homemade scented candles and handmade hooBoo Bears some of which have been brought out especially for “Mam’s Day”
