I am probably going to come across as a mean and ungrateful person but this time of year always irritates me.
I see all those endless ads encouraging everyone to show their mother how much they appreciate all the wonderful things they have done for them. Send flowers, chocolates or other considerate gifts.
Most people I expect do have or have had a loving, caring mother, however, my experience of motherly love was quite different. So, if this post seems to be bitter and overly self-indulgent it is just how I feel about Mothers' Day.
