Mother's Day - should we only celebrate them on the one day?

Tell us about your mum and we’ll help you celebrate all she’s done for you! 

Mother’s Day has been and gone this year and for most of us, it was a great time to celebrate our mum’s. Some of us took our mothers out for lunch, some sent flowers, and some made them dinner. It was the least we could do really, considering our mothers housed us in their bodies for nine months and painstakingly gave birth to us.

Despite all they have done (be it plastering us up when we fell over, watching us sing (badly) at the talent quest, cooking our dinner night-after-night or loving us unconditionally), some of you will still have forgot to organise something for Mother’s Day! To these people, Morton Estate asks, “What were you thinking?!!!”  Morton Estate believes mums are worth celebrating any time of the year and they want to help you make it up to your mums with something extra special. 

We have six double packs of Morton Estate sparkling wine to giveaway. To be in the draw to win, simply write a comment below to tell us a bit about your mum – when did you realize you hand turned into your mum? Or, what traits have you picked up from her along the way? THEN, head to the Love & Relationships forum and make a constructive contribution to discussion there to FINALISE your entry.

Each double pack contains one bottle each of Morton Estate Mimi Méthode Traditionnelle and Morton Estate Premium Brut Méthode Traditionnelle.  Morton Estate’s Mimi is a fun and vivacious sparkling wine, with a sweet and soft palate. Morton Estate’s Premium Brut is fresh and lively with fresh fruit flavours, fit for any celebratory occasion. To check out the Morton Estate range of premium wines, go to

    My Mum died in 2007 at the young age of 46. I cherish every moment I ever had with her and she is an inspiration for me raising my two boys.

    My mum is very creative and thinks outside of the square so I think I have inherited that trait from her.

    My mum spent the last 60 years helping people of all races and beliefs to get ahead in life, she has taken teens into her house to help them grow and survive all that life throws at them. She has been the light at the end of the tunnel for me for the whole of my life. I love her with all my hesrt

    I had two mothers, my adopted mother who I grew up with till the age of 14 when she died. I found my birth mother at the age of 38 and she has since died. My first mother left me with wonderful memories and a family life for 14 years and then I was on my own until raising my own family. For birth mother there were only memories from the time I met her but what she did give me was her happy,creative traits and I gave her a family

    My mum and I are so similar from our mannerisms to the way we dress. We often show up somewhere and find we are identically dressed! Either I dress old for my ages (I'm 23) or my mum is dressing younger (40 something)

    The first year I started working with preschoolers I rang my mum and apologised. What for? she asked. For EVERYTHING I replied! For the tantrums, the messes, the confusing conversations, the worries...that only begins to cover it! My mum is awesome. Mad, but awesome!

    I realised I had turned into my mum when we were both sitting on the couch resting our cup of teas on our bellies...and my nana was there too doing the same thing. Freaky! Ahhhh, off to weight watchers. Seriously, I love my mum. I have two children of my own now, and I really can't believe how well she coped with four of us! Money was tight but she always found a way to put a good meal on the table, and take us on lots of outings, even if it was just fish & chips at the beach.

    opps, forgot the comment. I learned from my mum to take pleasure in the little things - and to budget!
