Goodbye, mum

It’s taken me over 2 months to figure out how to put this post together. But if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that my dearly beloved mum passed away unexpectedly in October.

It would be difficult to overstate how much she meant to me. I had never left home, and she was my carer for much of my life. In the past couple of years, as her health declined, that role reversed and I looked after her. I wish I could have done more.

There’s nothing I can say, or do that will change things. But I felt I couldn’t go back to posting my handmades without acknowledging how profoundly my life has changed without mum, my best friend, carer, counsellor and guiding light.
