In my post on 24th March I mentioned that my mother was quite ill.
Unfortunately, her diagnosis was terminal and the decline was rapid. Mum died at the end of April and we are grateful that she did not suffer a long, drawn-out death.
The void which has been left is indescribable and some days I feel completely lost.
However, life does go on and I will continue to share my thoughts, ideas, tips and suggestions with you all.
I was extraordinarily lucky to have a close and loving relationship with my mother for many years. I know that not everyone has this opportunity for a variety of reasons.
Much of my knowledge and ideas have come to me by being handed down through the generations from my mother and grandmothers.
So, this blog honours those women in my family who have come before me.
Farewell, Mum. Thank you for everything. I will love you always.
