A Year Gone By

I don't know how it's possible that a year has gone by since we all lost Mummy to cancer. So much has happened in a year, but I know that September 3 will always been a mournful, somber day for me, indelibly linked to the loss of my mother, my best friend.

Miss you, Mummy.

I loved seeing the pictures of your charming mom. I am drinking a cup of tea (with milk!) in her honor tonight.

Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts - I'm so glad I have so many pictures that make me smile, rather than cry. :-)

So sorry to hear about your mum, Melissa. I am so glad to have been able to meet her. I adored her.

Oh god, I meant Marissa. I'm a dumbass. Thank you for sharing your pictures. I should be better at keeping in touch with you.
