{Mother's Day}

On Sunday (30th March) it will be Mother's Day. It's always a bittersweet day - I love being a mother to my little kiddies, but I miss my own mum loads.

Anyway, I was sent a lovely parcel from @licensetopr with some Maw Broon's Home & Kitchen goodies.

Perfect Mother's Day gift I reckon!

I grew up absolutely loving Oor Wullie and The Broons. My sister and I have tonnes of their annuals which we were given each Christmas for years and years.

In a fab jute shopper I found a variety of goodies, including this Tea Cosy. I've had a tea cosy on my wishlist for a while now, so this one is ideal!

Tea Cosy, £9

And of course what do you need to go along with a Tea Cosy... tea of course! Also in the parcel was some Maw Broon's Afternoon Tea bags, some shortbread (which was delightful!) and some fudge (which was wolfed by myself in under an hour... definitely a good sign!!). We also had a pack of Caramel Shortcake to enjoy - 3 in a packet which was perfect for the the two kids and myself! The tins that the goodies are packaged in are just brill (my favourites are the shortbread tin in the top picture and the teabag tin, see below) and I'll need to make space for them on my kitchen shelving! The last item was a cookery book, Cooking with Bairns which has over 40 recipes and step-by-step instructions. We're excited to give them a whirl :-) If you're looking for a gift for Mother's Day then be sure to check this range out. I think the cookery book would make an ideal gift for friends that are parents that either aren't Scottish or that no longer live in Scotland (like my friend Ailsa, Perth Mummy).

Littlest demanding we try the biscuits!


P.S. I have a channel now on YouTube and so far I only have a couple of subscribers. Head on over and show me some love? Thanks!!


  1. This looks like a lovely gift parcel, though being English have no idea who the characters are! Like the sound of the fudge especially, a crumbly one, I hope! Happy Mother's Day!

  2. I got the package too. Beautiful stuff x
