I’m such a forgetful bear. Last year, I almost forgot Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day. Luckily, I remembered at the last moment. I picked some flowers for my Mum and bought my Dad some dark chocolate – his favourite!
In the UK
- Mothers’ Day is the fourth Sunday in Lent (usually from early March to early April).
