I went ‘Live’ on Facebook today and stated that everyone’s first love was their Mum. A pretty bold claim, but one I stand by (excepting those who, for whatever reason, didn’t get the chance to meet their Mum). Of course, as you grow up, love changes but hopefully your first love will always be there for you. My Mum is and I try to do the same for my children.


As a Mum myself, celebrating love for Mums is very important. We do so much for our children and if we don’t remind them, we get very little back – just want a million hugs and some thank yous. This is one of the reasons I wrote Lum’s Mum. There seem to be a lot of picture books about Dads – and how wonderful they are! – and I was a teensy bit jealous LOL!


Imagine my excitement then when I saw that Lum’s Mum had been included in Modern Guy’s ‘Alternative Valentine’s Day gift list – doing exactly what I hoped it would: celebrating love for Mums everywhere.  Pop on over to Modern Guy’s blog for his other recommendations of alternative ideas for ‘him’, ‘her, ‘kids’ and even ‘pets’.


If you’d like a copy of Lum’s Mum to gift to your first love or your little squeeze, head on over to my shop.


P.S. It’s been a mess of a year, I think we can all agree, and I lost my momentum for writing blogs. This blog will hopefully be the first of many in 2021. Pop back soon.
