Missing my little shadow ...

Please don’t forget that it’s the disease that makes someone lose appetite and hunger not their own choice. It reminds me of anorexia, which I suppose it is because the brain is telling the person they are full and they just can’t get the food down. It’s still very painful for us though. I hope you can remember the good things about your mum now. I am starting to think of good times together although it’s also sad. There is no easy path after bereavement but carry on and hope it gets easier. Take care Sue x
I guess you are right i know, its very hard, Thankyou x

The house is so bloody quiet .....
I always wondered why my partner always seemed to play cds. Now I know why. Mum used to sing snatches of songs, which used to drive me mad, but oh what wouldnt I give to hear her singing away to herself contentedly, like she used to.

For the last week I have seen sorting through my mums papers. Just a little bit each day . I knew mum liked to keep letters etc " because you never know if you might need them" But pension slips from 15 years back , receipts for the kitchen put in 33 years ago ...really! Lol. Seeing her handwriting on bills with the amount circled and the note "cut back on phone calls" makes me both smile and sad ! The best one was the deposit receipt for our family home ...... £75 !!

it's amazing the things you find. I found the bill for the taxi to church for mum's wedding in 1950, and also the bill for the funeral of my brother, who only lived 3 days. Also a copy of a printed letter about a presentation for Canon Flannery, who had instructed mum prior to her confirmation with mum's name along with other girls who wanted to contribute.
