If you could choose exactly what you wanted this Mother’s Day, what would it be? I would choose time. Time to relax and enjoy the day with my family. Time to read a book. Time to do absolutely nothing.
It’s not always easy for our kids and partners to know what it is that we’d really like for Mother’s Day. I remember one year I desperately wanted a dutch pancake maker (like this one). I left a brochure on the coffee table, in the kitchen, on the dining table, moving it around the house for weeks, strategically open at the exact page where the pancake maker was shown. I thought I was making it SO obvious. Alas, no. Don’t get me wrong, I adored the flowers and choccies I received. They were given with love and what is more precious than that? I did however learn that our families are not mind readers. Instead of picking up my signals, Mark just thought I was being messy, leaving that brochure all over the place.
No, the only way to let people know what you really want, is to tell them straight. That’s exactly what www.hint-hint.com.au was designed to do! The fabulous people at The Cheescake Shop have designed a fun (and not so subtle!) way to let your loved ones know what you really want. Alternatively, just pop into your nearest The Cheesecake Shop, pick up one of their fun hint hint cards and let your family know in an instant. Simple!
I’ve clicked through to www.hint-hint.com.au and let Mark and R know that they don’t need to spend big this year. All I want is time with them – oh and maybe one of those AMAZING cakes from The Cheesecake Shop. My pics? The Black Forest Cake (takes me back to my childhood) or the classic Chocolate Mud Cake.
So tell me, what would you choose for yourself this Mother’s Day?
