My mum once told me that you don’t start growing old until you lose your mum. I am very blessed to still have my mum and could never imagine life without her.  I saw an interview with Kelly Rowland on 60 Minutes on the weekend, she spoke about losing her mum recently and the devastating effect it had on her. A bond between mother and child is definitely like no other.


I have four amazing boys and I love the relationship they have with Briony. It’s unconditional in every sense of the word. Her love for them never stops. The beautiful connection starts from the minute they are born when they are placed on mums chest and then as they become more and more aware the look in their eyes staring into their mother’s eyes.


Growing into an adult and having my own children my relationship with my mum takes on a whole new meaning. Understanding the sacrifices she made for us growing up. Mum brought up four children on her own with no help what so ever as all her family were living in Lebanon. I really don’t know how she did it, and up until today, I have never heard her complain. She is the most selfless person I know and continues to give to all her grandchildren.

In recent times with Briony taking on quite a time-consuming role at work, I have been lucky enough to spend quite a bit of time with the boys and playing the role of Mr Mum. Although extremely rewarding to be in this position, it has really opened my eyes to how challenging it can be. It can be lonely and thankless in a lot of ways. I couldn’t imagine doing this for years on end and really appreciate what my mum did for us. She is someone I will never ever take for granted.


Mums are very special and even though I think everyday should be Mother’s Day, let’s really celebrate them this coming Mother’s Day. If you would like to give the gift of beautiful hair and pamper your mum we have a couple of great offers at Hair by Phd. See details below.
