Mum’s the word we’re talking to capalaba park’s favourite families to uncover the super-mums of the centre.

The best advice your mum ever gave you?

To never give up.

Carol from Lenard’s Chicken talks about her mum JOAN Three words to describe your mum... Kind, thoughtful and friendly. What’s your favourite (or funniest) memory of your mum? In Hong Kong, we went to a zoo and mum laughed at something the macaws were saying, so the macaws were mimicking her laugh, which led to mum laughing louder and the birds copying her more, until she had to run away from them!

Lisa of Loot Homewares talks about her mum CARMEL

Three words to describe your mum... Beautiful, compassionate and inspiring. What was it like working with your mum? She always showed me to consider that everyone is on their own life journey and try not to judge others as you don’t know their story. If money were no object, what would you give your mum for Mother’s Day? I would fly her to Paris to sit back and drink coffee and eat croissants with the Eiffel Tower in view.

The best advice your mum ever gave you? If it feels right, follow your instincts and go with it.

8 Capalaba Park Mother’s Day 2014

What is it like working with your mum? On the odd occasion when we have worked together it always makes work more enjoyable, as she is not just my mum ... but a best friend.

Sarah of Mathers Shoes talks about her mum JUDITH If money were no object, what would you give your mum for Mother’s Day? I would hire a maid for her, to help her look after the house and the circus of five animals and three children! What’s the funniest or favourite memory of your mum? There are so many.. but I would have to say most recently my favourite memory would be hearing mum’s speech at my 21st birthday party. It was some of the nicest things that have ever been said about me and I felt so lucky to be able to call her my mum.

Beth from Wax’d talks about her mum Rachael The best advice your mum ever gave you? It’s a family favourite and her mum used to say it to her “What’s for you, won’t go past you.” Which is all about trusting in the natural process of life and not getting caught up in the small stuff. Three words to describe your mum...

My Mum is - Fun, caring and strong What’s the funniest or favourite memory of your mum? My favourite memory of my mum would be a special moment we shared on my wedding day.

Alexandra of Lara’s Gifts talks about her mum Maria


If money were no object, what would you give your mum for Mother’s Day? I’d send her on a relaxing overseas vacation. She works extremely hard and deserves some time off. What is it like working with your mum? To be honest, working with mum has it’s ups and downs. But in saying that, it means I can watch her in her work environment and witness how much effort she puts into what she does. What’s the funniest or favourite thing about your mum? She’s going to kill me for putting this in a magazine, but my funniest memory of my mum is every time she’s dancing. She has her own little dance floor at the shop (dancing from the counter to the storeroom). 9




a cosy cardY is one of those heart-warming creature comforts to brighten anyone’s day... just like a hug from mum!
