A new poll reveals how mothers actually want to spend Mother’s Day. The charity Wellbeing of Women teamed up with FabLittleBag to ask their supporters for their preferences on Twitter.
The voters chose between four options:
- Cup of tea in bed
- Day out with the family
- Chores taken care of
- Total peace and quiet
Whilst 1 in 5 opted for a cup of tea in bed, a third wanted nothing more than total peace and quiet, showing that this in itself can be a rare luxury for many mothers. Only 11% voted for chores to be taken care of, which could possibly suggest that tasks are now shared more equally throughout the household, or simply that additional pleasures are valued more highly.
The highest proportion of votes, 36%, went to having a day out with the family, which will be reassuring for those sons and daughters who have arranged a treat to enjoy together with their mum.
The final scores were:
- Cup of tea in bed 20%
- Day out with the family 36%
- Chores taken care of 11%
- Total peace and quiet 33%
Total of 132 votes.
