“Our dear mums never get to do anything exciting!” says voucher website ahead of Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is tomorrow, which almost certainly in no way explains why the Daily Mail decided to highlight the monotonous life of the modern mum:

Mother’s groundhog day: A third of mums say they’re so tied to their daily routine they haven’t tried ANYTHING new in the past year

Few would argue that motherhood is one of toughest challenges a woman can face in her life.

And new research suggests that many mothers feel rather constrained by their role.

A third of mothers say they are so tied to their daily routine they haven’t tried anything new in the past year.

Research found half of bored British mothers (48 per cent) complain they are ‘stuck in a rut’.

It seems mothers these days have it tough, with few poor mum’s getting to go out to the cinema, or to enjoy a weekend away, or to be pampered in a spa for a day, or even to have a romantic meal for two.

We know all of these things are lacking from the lives of our wives and mothers, because a survey carried out by Groupon – the voucher website offering deals on trips to the cinema, weekends away, pampering spa days and romantic meals for two – discovered exactly what mum’s want most in their lives at the moment that can be bought on Groupon.

In utterly unrelated news, on Mother’s Day (tomorrow), children traditionally buy gifts for their mother, as a show of their affection and appreciation.
