Bring your mummy?

23 March 2006 by Dawn

Never has Mother’s Day been so complicated. I am a mummy myself, but instead of looking forward to a weekend of relaxation, I am busy trying to work out how we are going to mark the occasion for no less than 4 generations of women in the family. There’s me, my mum, mother-in-law, step-mother (in-law), and three grandmothers. So potentially my daughter could send cards to her mummy, nanna, grandma, step-nanny, great-grandma, great-nanna and great-grandmother. That’s 13 cards in all – or about £25. So we’ll be getting the glue, glitter and paints out this weekend I expect!

Of course, if I could get my 94 year old nan online we could send her one of our fabulous FREE Mother’s Day e-cards.  Better still, I could even bring her along to one of our museums and galleries for the day. Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight is likely to be a favourite this weekend with Pre-Raphaelite Drawings still on show and the ever-popular cafe. But if you’re looking for something really different, why not visit the Treasure House Theatre at World Museum Liverpool? The Death on the Nile performance  features the magical techniques of mummification!

(Performance starts 3pm, limited tickets from the info desk).
