Did you know that mums only get an average of 17 minutes of time to themselves every day? It’s pretty surprising to read it in black and white, but the look on any tired mother’s face will tell you it’s true. Mums have a million-and-one things to get through everyday from getting out the door on time with everyone wearing matching shoes, to running errands at lunchtime, taking the kids to sports after school, and making sandwiches for the next day before going to bed.
The survey, which was commissioned by TV Bed, also found that just over half of the 2,000 women polled could go an entire week or longer without having any “me” time at all.
You might think that the top way for mums to spend their precious free time was doing something ultra luxurious like have a full body massage. Actually, what most women want is to retreat to the sanctuary of their bedroom with a cup of tea to catch up on their reading or their favourite TV shows in peace. Sounds blissful, doesn’t it!
Your mum deserves the best so give her the gift of time this Mother’s Day with a Family Clean gift voucher. They come in five different denominations and can be redeemed against any of our services. Let us free up her time so she can spend it doing the things she likes with the people she loves.
Happy Mother’s Day this Sunday to all the beautiful Mothers, and Mothers to be!
