This is the most difficult blog post I have ever made and I have agonised over whether to publish this or not.
Yesterday my mother lost her battle with long term illness and I lost a wonder mother. As I write this I can barely see the keyboard so I hope you will forgive me for keeping this brief. I wasn’t there at the very end for her although I dearly wish I could have been. Despite being ill for some time and spending the last few months in hospital, the end came without warning.
She was a wonderful, kind lady who loved to help others. She also loved donkeys and had been donating money to the donkey sanctuary for the past 30 years. I had been looking for a picture to print to hang in her room and only now that it’s too late have I found the one she would have loved.
Although this is so hard to write it’s somehow helping me. There are so many things that I now wish I had said but my chance has gone. I love you mum and will always keep your memory with me.
I hope everyone will forgive me if I now take a few days off and reply to any emails/questions when I return.
