Mother, Mum, Mama

Mum’s the Word!

We shouldn’t need an allocated day of the year to pay tribute to this lady, after all, she’s the main reason you know that eating carrots will make you see in the dark, sitting too close to the TV screen will make your eyes square, and that you should always separate your whites and colours…

To celebrate Mother’s Day, we at The Morrison thought it would be nice to spread the warm fuzzy feels and a couple of our staff have kindly shared their favourite childhood memories of their mums (awww, too cute!)

Charlotte Brandolini (Front of House + Chef)

“I come from a family of 5 kids, so it’s safe to say that we were fighting for mums attention all the time. To her credit, my mum would do her utmost to make sure we all got individual love and time with her. She use to take me with her grocery shopping on Thursday nights – it was this really special thing for just me and her and I absolutely cherished it. We would get hot chocolates afterwards and I felt like such a grown up. It’s really funny to think now how important these nights out where for me.”

Juan Carlos (Kitchen Manager)

“There’s no other way to say it, my Mother raised 3 little beasts. As young children and as teenagers, my little brother (idiot Oscar) and I were the worst, we were two savages always fighting and my Mother would have to suffer through the blood, tears and jealousy! But, she is the greatest lady, with a beautiful, strong character.”

Erin Carroll (Marketing)

“Time & patience – ask anyone who knows her, my mum has these two wonderful qualities for which I consider myself to be very lucky. The youngest of two, I was incredibly spoilt and nurtured as a child – my curiosity and vivaciousness encouraged. From sitting in on 15 years of Irish dancing classes, to helping me hand sew sequins onto dresses for uni projects, my mum has supported me through everything I’ve done. There’s something very calming about her personality that keeps you very grounded and safe.”
