There’s a very sad reason why I haven’t been around for a while. Just over a year ago my mum was diagnosed with terminal Renal Cell Carcinoma and last month we lost her. It was a horrible end to her life but she was so brave, stoic and dignified throughout her illness, so strong that she even planned her funeral, the hymn’s, readings and music.
That was my mum, organised!
I will miss her dreadfully. I miss our chats, her humour and her sharp tongue (when my dad has done something she wouldn’t have been happy about!) I shall miss her marvellous cooking, her gardening tips, her kindness, wisdom, advice and much, much more. I know I was very fortunate to have had her, she was a wonderful mum.
She took an interest in my blog and gave me feedback on my cards, (mostly positive!) and of course this is yet another thing that I shall miss. However, I do know that she wanted us all to get back on with our lives, so I intend to return to my craft room shortly.
