I’ve tried starting this post about five times.

I want to write a nice mothers day post. But I can’t.

I’ve been going through my posts from this time last year. The ones from when I put mum into hospital. And then, seven weeks later, into the nursing home.

The posts that were too much for my family and I was told by them to unpublish or censor my words.


If you are lucky enough to have a mum who you can love unconditionally, who you can respect, admire, learn from. A mum who loves *you* unconditionally. Hang onto it. As tight as you can.

Tomorrow, tell your mum that you love her.

Please do it for me and the others like me who don’t have much to celebrate tomorrow.
