Mother’s of Formans

Written by , Posted in News, Seasonal

As Mother’s Day draws in (2 weeks earlier thanks to the ways of the lunar cycle!) we asked some of our favourite Forman & Field Mum’s to describe their ideal Mothering Sunday’s.  Naturally they had a few Forman & Field products on their mind, but more often than not the thought was much more important than the expenditure.  If you’re looking for some inspiration or a wish list please read on…

Claire, our Wholesale and Events extraordinaire explains, “Having a full time job with fully energized  children can be a wonderful but tiring time sometimes.  My ideal Mother’s Day would undoubtedly consist of relaxation and some treats from the little ones.  I’d love to start the day with our Breakfast in Bed Hamper, with the toughest decision being whether or not to open the bottle of bubbly!  After that, unlimited cups of tea, plenty of cuddles and ideally no tantrums – this sounds like bliss!”

Loretta, predominantly our head of dispatch but whizz kid at so much more too is often up before even the birds start singing.  After as much of a lie in as her early-to-rise mind would allow, she says, “Cook a hearty Full English for me and the family to eat around the table and I’m happy until at least early afternoon.  But it has to be good quality, I’m very fussy about meat quality, high welfare makes all the difference to the taste so I’m very much for that.  A lady after our own heart, with our own standards!

Danuté, our furiously hard working “we’re not entirely sure what her job title is because she pretty much does everything!” leading lovely lady is a naturally active human being (and we love her for this!).  So we weren’t surprised when she explained, “The perfect Mother’s Day for me would be a lovely long work in nature with my family.  Hopefully it’s dry, and we can wrap up warm.  I’d love to pack the Afternoon Tea Hamper into my picnic basket and scoff on these with a flask of tea in hand too.  That to me sounds like the perfect day.”

Lorraine, one of our longest standing team members and HR babe, prefers to keep it simple.  “I love things that come from the heart, so truly, I’m happy just receiving a hand made card with a hand written message.  But they always insist on buying something anyway, the chocolate/fizz combo from Forman & Field has never failed me, as they insist!”

A mighty fine and varied selection from our Mum’s of Forman & Field – hopefully one of them brings a light bulb above your head, we’d be happy to help!
