A Mother’s Day gift you actually want

Walking through Clapham Junction station on the way home from work this evening, the window display in JOY caught my eye. The word “MUM” was there in big, wooden block letters, surrounded by cute, vintage-style teacups and cake stands and kitsch brooches and accessories. But to the left of that sweet and well-meaning display was the gift that mums like me, who value a retro-style shirt dress with an eye-bashing print above all things, really really want.

If anyone I have given birth to is reading this post, please take note.
