So how was your Mother’s Day? Mine was SPLENDID. I had my mother staying and two out of three children at home on Sunday morning and then just before midday in walked my daughter who had driven all the way from university to join us for lunch. So I had a full house which was just great. I even got flowers. The fact that they are old enough to gang up on me and take the piss almost didn’t matter. We did the same to our mother, so I guess it’s a mother’s lot and the price I must pay!
So here was my Sunday morning Mother’s Day mess with all the children back in da house:-
I made them walk through the park to the pub for our lunch. It’s the only day of the year that I can insist that they come with me for a walk and even then it was after much arguing about how an Uber would be so much easier, or even the bus…”why do all mothers like walking?” asked my youngest, “they are all such losers!”
I brought my mother some really gorgeous biscuits from Biscuiteers – our latest love (and adding a link in the hope they find me and send me some Easter biscuits to try!). My daughter made me send her the First Aid Box of biscuits when she was ill with pneumonia a few weeks ago. For my mother, I chose butterflies:-
This is what the First aid kit looked like that I sent my daughter – sure it massively aided her recovery:-
Whereas this is what she suggested might aid my recovery:-
I was OUTRAGED by one of the Mother’s Day press releases I received. Here I am trying to feel that a little bit of exercise and dieting is enough to keep myself vaguely in shape and all the while there are people out there trying to undermine us to the point where they can sell us some plastic surgery to improve our bodies. I really think that promoting cosmetic surgery for purely cosmetic purposes should be banned:-
This is what it said – I’ve taken the name of the surgeon out for legal purposes!:-
With Mother’s Day looming, women throughout the UK will be celebrating parenthood. But for ladies who are still trying to escape the clutches of the postpartum or middle age paunch, sagging skin and breasts, a mummy makeover – a set of complementary cosmetic procedures designed to invigorate a woman’s physique, could be the ultimate treat.
Pregnancy, delivery, breastfeeding, hormonal fluctuations and the ageing process can make it difficult for women to shift excess weight, and, despite a rigorous gym and diet regime, some women will often find it difficult to regain their youthful body. However, Dr xxxx, an internationally renowned cosmetic sculptor, is able to perform surgery to remove loose skin around the middle via a tummy tuck, liposuction to contour and sculpt the body, and a breast lift or augmentation procedure to perk the boobs.
A woman’s breasts help define her femininity, and with the vast differences in shape, size and appearance they also help to reflect her individuality. Dr. xxxx can reduce the volume and help restore firmness and shape to give breasts a youthful appearance, which will improve body contours. Breast uplift surgery can also be combined with augmentation (breast fat injection or implants) to provide the patient with fuller assets.
Liposuction works by removing excess fat tissue, which reshapes the patient’s figure and creates a slimmer appearance. It is not an effective treatment for cellulite or obesity as its main goal is to enhance body contours and sculpt a person’s physique rather than achieve weight loss.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed. It works by removing loose skin, fat deposits and stretch marks from the abdominal region. In addition, vertical abdominal muscles that have been stretched and weakened over time are tightened, restoring the appearance of a firmer, flatter stomach.
Dr xxxx, consulting at xxxx, says: “The suitability of having multiple treatments would need to be assessed on a case by case basis. The consultant can combine two treatments in one operation but this is not common practice and I would usually advise the patient to allow at least six months between each surgery to ensure that the body has healed and the recovery process is complete. The complementary treatments can boost a woman’s self-confidence and, once her body has been contoured, she will feel more proportionate and will have the ability to wear a wider choice of clothes.”
