Mum



My mum died last Monday, May 7th.

I'm fighting the urge to post just that.

what more can i say?





sharing some of the past year with some of you has been important to me, so it felt right to let you know.



We buried her on Friday in a very very small private family ceremony which was one of the most painful experiences of my life, but also one of the most beautiful.



I expect I'll blog a bit more about this later, but thats all for now.

I'm really very sorry to hear this, lettuce, but I read the next post first, and see that she had you (her family) and a lovely view... I'm sure that made her very happy.
