Today is the 9th anniversary of my mothers death. This day is always a bit of a weird one for me and I never know what to do, I feel like I should be sad or celebrating but I just feel weird. Nowadays it feels like the norm not to have a mum so when I think about when she was here it just feels a bit alien to me. Don’t get me wrong I miss her A LOT and I sometimes do get a pang of jealously when I hear about others talk about their lovely times with their mums. Sometimes I do just want her to come back, scoop me into her arms like she did when I was little and tell me she loves me, *sigh* why haven’t time machines been invented yet!?
Alas, today she will be remembered and I thought I’d tell you some things about her that I remember. When I was a child she worked in Tesco and then when we moved to Wales she became a childminder. Before she died she had dreams of being a B&B owner by the seaside. She loved elephants and butterflies, she got MANY elephant decor for birthdays and Christmases. She really enjoyed gardening and had her own cornered off area at the end of our garden for her little veg plots and greenhouse. Along with gardening she loved flowers, her favourite ones were lilies and roses.
That’s about it from me today. Hope you are having a lovely day and I will try to get a normal post up on Friday.
