There's been a bit of a lull here as we've been coping with some sad times and I havn't felt able to share them here, although I did talk about it on Facebook. On 21 September our beautiful Mum, who you've met here from time to time, passed away after a serious stroke. We were in Cornwall when the stroke happened and got back as quickly as we could and were able to see Mum before she passed. I believe she knew we were with her before she went.
Our service here was, as much as we could make it, a celebration of mum's long life and I am so grateful for my beautiful mum who always gave my brother and I her best. She had the most beautiful smile despite her difficulties and was a brave and courageous lady. She was kind, warm, generous, thoughtful, adventurous, sometimes very frustrating, loving, creative, an elegant ballroom dancer and I am so proud that she was my mum. I have lots of lovely memories to take along with me and when I guffaw outloud I can hear her.
