Sunday 26th of March 2017 is Mothering Sunday in the UK.
We have Mother’s Day cards and lots of gift ideas.
Mother’s Day, traditionally known as Mothering Sunday in the UK, is a day when people show their appreciation of their mothers.
It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, yet most commonly in March, April, or May. In the UK, Mothers’ Day falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent.

Easter falls this year on 16th of April. Enjoy Easter and Mother’s Day. We have lovely cards and Easter eggs also Simnel Cake.

Simnel cakes have been baked since the middle ages and it is believed that the word Simnel comes from the Latin ‘Simila,’ which meant very fine flour made from wheat.
Simnel cakes were difficult to make, but if made properly they would keep for a few weeks.
Thus the baking of a Simnel cake for Mothering Sunday was not only a gift from a girl to her mother, but also a test of the girl’s cooking skills.
The cake would not be eaten until Easter Sunday, and the whole family would be anxious to see if the cake was still moist.
