!Mothering Sunday originates from the 16th Century. It associated with the tradition of going to the “Mother Church” on the fourth Sunday of Lent. This is why the dates change each year as Mothering Sunday falls three weeks before Easter Sunday so is in March or the beginning of April.
Mothering Sunday became a very rare day when domestic servants were given a special day off by their households to spend time with their own mothers and families to be able to visit their ‘mother’ church.
It has now become a more commercialised day but fundamentally remains a day when families come together to spend time with their mums and celebrate motherhood. This is done by giving gifts or giving the mum of the family a day of being spoilt whether it be a cup of tea in bed on the Sunday morning or a full day of being looked after with a meal being cooked for them or a day out.
The best part of Mothering Sunday for me when my 3 children were a lot younger was them cooking me a meal. This was so special for me, to see the lengths they went and the joy of seeing them putting so much effort in was enough to more than make up for the absolute chaos and devastation of my kitchen and oven.
This is what gave us the idea of offering “Mothers Day” oven cleaning vouchers as the perfect gift to use at anytime after Mothers Day. So not only could the Mum of the family get a wonderful meal cooked by her children but she would not have to worry at all about any mess made in the oven because we are professional Oven cleaners and would come in and make sure your oven is clean and sparkling only using 100% biodegradable solutions.
Whatever your children do for you this Mothering Sunday it doesn’t matter whether it’s the biggest or smallest gift or largest or tiniest gesture as long it is given with love you will be delighted I am sure.
I hope everyone has a lovely and restful Mothering Sunday.
