  13. Dear Friends,

    Thank you all for your kind and thoughtful messages. I appreciate every single one of them.

    The sudden loss of my mother who was very fit and healthy has been traumatic for all my family; she was the cornerstone of our lives and provided unfailing security, consistency and love.

    It will be hard for me to come to terms with her loss in this manner... although a part of me knows that ultimately it was as she wished. Having spent most of her life caring for others she feared a long protracted death, senility and becoming a although her death has come far too soon I am conscious that her suffering was brief, her wishes fufilled and for that I am grateful.

    I am very fortunate to have some wonderfully supportive friends and family and I am even more lucky that in the course of the last year, whilst blogging, I have made so many more.

    Thank you all once again,
