#sozmum confessions for Mother's Day

On Sunday it was Mother’s Day and mums all over the country woke up to beautifully wrapped gifts, flowers and lots of love from their children. Or maybe your house looked a bit more like mine, where mum woke up to a big sloppy kiss... from the dog, while I ran to the shops to grab some rather lonely flowers which everyone else had rejected (#sozmum)!

Mother's Day #sozmum confession: "I used your toothbrush to scratch my butt"

Throughout last week, you may have also seen the whirlwind of confessions going up over social media, as Macmillan launched their #sozmum campaign. We asked people to confess the fibs they have told their mums, whilst giving the option to text ‘SOZ’ to 70550 and donate £3 to support Macmillan.

I think it was incredible to see how many people got involved in the campaign, and I loved reading all the hilarious confessions. Some famous faces even took part, as well as pets, and even teddy bears! 

#sozmum Mother's Day confession: "for always doing stinky trumps when you have friends round. For watering the neighbour's leg when you took me for a walk".

What I also found really heart-warming was when some people used their messages to give thanks to their mums, or to say sorry if they weren’t able to spend mother’s day together.

Mother’s Day can also be a difficult time for anyone whose mum has passed on, whether from cancer or another cause.  However, what the #sozmum campaign emphasised to me was how humour can help us feel better, even in the toughest situations.
