Mums Relax with Minchinbury

by

School holidays are now over.

Kids are back at school. Babies might be at care. Hubby, you, and others are back at work. If you are not in a paid job you are still doing a full-time gig (Yes Motherhood is a full-time job that has no breaks).

The world has returned to normal.

Everyone is back in the daily grind. Doing everything that needs to be done.

However, if you are mum and the primary caregiver, you have not stopped. You have kept on going. You have created fun, activities, sorted out fights and arguments and so much more.

Being a mother means that you are still working in a full-time job but you don’t have a break, holiday or get paid.

If it was up to me there would be more hugs, thanks, gifts and of course time out.

I loved taking some time out having a relaxing glass of Moscato. It was a nice way to end the day and gave me some much-needed quiet time.

Mums really don’t get enough thanks or praise.

To all the mums out there. You are doing an awesome job. You keep everyone safe, well, and looked after, while looking after the house and everything in-between. Well done!

Minchinbury Wines are perfect to catch up with family and friends.

So how do you encourage this?

  • If you see a mum tell her what a good job she is doing.
  • If your partner is not feeling good about something give her a hug. Hugs helps everyone feel better.
  • Purchase flowers just because. They cheer everyone up.
  • Bring home takeaway to give her a night off from cooking. Or you can cook her a meal and make sure to clean up after as well. You don’t want to have her come back to a messy kitchen. You can get some inspiration from the recipes on the Minchinbury website.
  • Why not book a babysitter and take your much-loved partner out to dinner or a romantic escape?
  • Give her a nice present of Minchinbury A nice drink watching while your love watches her favourite show or shares a drink with mates.
  • Oh, and make sure to mind the kids or take them to the park so that your wife/partner can truly relax.
  • Get tips from Minchinbury on food matching. You can make some delicious food that complement their tasty wines. See the below video to find out how to make a CHICKEN, FETA AND ALMOND SALAD WITH RASPBERRY VINAIGRETTE that goes well with the Blush Minchinbury Wine.

My mum came to visit and I shared the Minchinbury Blush Rosé Cuvée with her and hubby. It was a nice drop of wine. Not too sweet and just right.

    I’d love to win this fabulous 3 pack of Minchinbury Wines for Mother’s Day. This year I’ll be celebrating being a mum with my mum, sister and sister-in-law and these will be the perfect accompaniment to our celebrations!

    I love entertaining and being social. It’s important to have a laugh. It also pairs well with a cheeky glass of bubbles, some crackers and cheese! I have some wonderful women in mind who I know would jump at the chance to catch up for Minchinbury and plenty of laughter.
    Happy Mother’s Day.

    Desperately in need of “Tolerance Juice” at the end of the work day so I can put my apron on and do all the parental chores alone

    Because I’ve just started training for my first ever half-marathon and doing really well so far so think I deserve to cheer myself on with a lovely glass of Moscato!!

    I’d really love some Minchinbury wine! It would be a nice excuse to buy lots of cheese and crackers and have a wine tasting at home.
    Ha ha I’ve made it sound semi sophisticated but I’d be on the couch in my pyjamas popping those corks!

    Poked, prodded and peered at through pregnancy and childbirth; toddler tantrums in public places; sauce stains on special occasions. Not a lot embarrasses me these days. I think Minchinbury would be just right to help me remember the feeling of a good “Blush” 😉

    These would be the perfect addition to a girls night in – night outs are few and far between but getting a few friends over after the kids are asleep means we can all relax and have a few drinks in the comfort of home – and pyjamas 😀

    I’d love to gift them to my Mum for Mothers Day. I think she deserves them after raising my brothers, sisters and I! Just some of the stress we put her through involves …. my brother getting his head stuck in public stair banisters, another brother getting lost in Grace Bros and having security looking for him for ages until we found him hiding under a clothes rack, a sister breaking an arm at school and me being sick all over the party table at someone else’s 5th party….. yet she still loves us all! She’s amazing!

    I’d love to win because we just built a bar area for the days we need to relax,
    these would look perfect showcased in it, not sure how long they will last though. 😛

    3 Bottles = approximately 3 weeks of surviving arsenic hour in our house (depending on the severity of the tanties).

    Last year my kids presented me a box of empty chocolate wrappers on the morning of mother’s day in tears. They’d eaten them while wrapping them ☺Having a beautiful tasting wine they wouldn’t be able to open alongside their box of chocolates this year means no tears if they did indulge in a bit of choc. I know how hard it is to avoid yummy chocolate. They get it from me!!! Choc for them, a glass of wine for me when they toddle off to bed means a mother’s day celebration where everyone gets an treat and most all – everyone’s happy!

    I’d love to relax and enjoy these with the Mother in Law while the men cook us a tasty feast and the kids massage our feet! Couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday arvo, to be honest!

    One for me, and one each for two of my lovely and deserving gal pal support network! A prize like this would be all the sweeter shared at a Friday night end of week celebration! Because ‘we’re worth it’!

    This will be my first Mother’s Day with just myself and four young kids after losing our hubby and father to illness last year.

    When I see these pretty wines at the store, I have no idea which one to try, so I leave them sitting on the shelf! This would be the answer, a chance to try them all out. 🙂
