Let's make a plan

Updated: Dec 31, 2019

For Mum - Mother's Day - Sunday 12th May

Mum = a woman with the ability to love without measure

Mothers give a lot up for their families –

‘’No degree or prior experience required; salary and hours non-negotiable; no paid benefits; lifelong tenure’

If this sounds all too familiar why not give Mum or that special lady in your life a break and surprise her with a bunch of flowers or a lovely meal out at one of our favourite local restaurants and book that table!



We are so lucky to have so many fabulous restaurants on the Northern Beaches and Sydney


My personal top picks for local restaurants to visit on Mother’s Day:

- Bistro Boulevard - French Bistro in Avalon - 9918 8933

- Via Napoli - Authentic Italian in Lane Cove, Hunters Hill and Surry Hills

- Pizzico Italiano - Authentic Italian in Avalon Beach - 9918 8717

- Barrenjoey House - The newest member of The Boathouse Family in Palm Beach - 9974 4001


** Don't forget to book a table in advance!




Local Florists in Avalon, Newport, Whale Beach and Palm Beach

Avalon Floral Art - phone: 02 9918 2711 (Avalon)

Haven and Sarah - phone: 02 9918 7772 (Avalon)

Wild Lotus - phone: 02 9997 7616 (Newport)

Moby's at Whale Beach and The Boathouse at Palm Beach also have a nice selection of fresh cut flowers displayed at the front of their shopfronts to purchase each morning.



Many hands make light work - If you are part of a large family, it wouldn't take much to do something amazing together

Something Different

You could even surprise mum by fixing things up around the house, a fresh coat of paint, tiling, re-hanging doors and pictures, anything really. Take a look around her home, there may be things there that she would be over the moon to have improved (and this present will last much longer than a bunch of flowers!)


Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, should you need a hand around the house (or around your mum's place) with completing all those jobs that have been outstanding on your list... like in forever! Feel free to call me, Mark from Onshore Handyman Services on 0414 525 484 or email mark@onshorehandymanservices.com.au


I guess the pressure is on and I better organise that bunch of flowers and book that table!


til next time.
