only to see what new and inventive surprises the gift industry can come up with. My own mother, now departed, was accustomed to receiving small bunches of fl owers brought home from church by her children on Mothering Sunday. Another ‘treat’ was to come down in the morning and fi nd that the breakfast table had been pre-laid with everything from jam to self-raising fl our. My mother had no truck with today’s modern- day manifestation of the day and was something of a reactionary; she offered the view that the patron saint of Mother’s Day should be called St Retail. She had a point, as the greeting cards, garden centre, confectionery, fl orists and restaurant industries would agree. Even garages now benefi t from our outpourings of love when they sell tiny, last-minute bouquets of daffs for approximately the price you would have to pay if they were made of platinum instead of some sort of vegetable material. And talking of garages, my children have promised to club together and buy me half a tank of petrol for Father’s Day. As presents go, it’s not big on affection, but it’s certainly practical.

There has been a recent fashion for challenging gifts, such as giving your mum a voucher for free- fall parachuting or a hot air balloon trip. If she’s the bunji jumping type, that’s fair enough but I think mine would have preferred the Bluebell Railway’s round trip through our beautiful Sussex countryside with afternoon tea in the Lounge Car. Actually I wouldn’t mind it myself. ■
