|nothing says "I love you" like a cress head|
We've always tried a crafty approach in our house, and by crafty I don't mean creeping up behind wifey and giving her some chocolate we've half inched out of the fridge, no, we're classier than that in our household. We like doing lots of craft activities anyway- wifey always has the paint, glue, card, scissors and bits of twig and branch out. In fact we would have this week, aside from the sick bug that's been doing the rounds. Instead, a degree of progress has been made on the gardening front instead.
So time will be limited, and inspired by the Forestry Commission, we'll be off over the woods on Saturday (because every bloke is completely last minute, it's in our genes) to find some leaves and moss to make a woody variant on the cress head wifey made with the kids over the summer.
Of course if you don't have the time to get out with the kids, you can still visit the Forestry Commissions online shop for some woody Mother's Day awards, and perhaps even look at the flowers if you're going down the traditional route.
