23 Years Ago


23 years ago today my beloved Mum passed away. I miss her so much. There is so much I wish I'd told her; so many things I wish I'd done. All she wanted was to see me married and to have grandchildren. Well, Mum, I am sure you were with me the day I got married ( the sun shone after an awful rainy week) and I know you will be so proud of your two grandaughters. God bless you and keep you safe:)

Tomorrow would have been my Mum-in-law's 69th birthday. Have a happy birthday up in heaven, Pat, with your parents and brothers. Don't drink all the gin:) She was my "surrogate" Mum and such a wonderful person. The photo shows her on the right with her older sisters and brother.


Both of them taken too soon. Hug your Mums and remember to tell them how much you love them and appreciate them.

Oh Sally, sometimes my mum can be such a pain but then I have to stop and tell myself how lucky I am that I still have her to argue with, confide in, and go to when I need a hug. I guess I am one of the really lucky ones to have my mum around still when i am an oap myself lol.

I am sure wherever you mum is she will look down from time to time and say "thats my daughter, isnt she a grand lass".

Your Mum will have been there during all the special times in your life even though you couldn't see her Sally. Sending lots of (((((((((hugs))))))))).

How wonderful that you and your mum shared such a beautiful relationship. Your love for her shines through your post, and she must have been an incredible person to raise such a daughter. You were blessed with a great m-i-l too - how lucky to have had two such women in your life.
