Mother’s Day 2017

Last Sunday was Mother’s Day and I was lucky enough to be thoroughly spoilt with homemade cards from the girls, a card they picked out at the shop with their Daddy, a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and Ed Sheeran’s new CD (which has been on non-stop in my car ever since!).

Dad: 2 Years

It’s crept up on me a bit this year.  I didn’t expect that.  Last year I was full of the anticipation of the day arriving, the anniversary of the day I got the phone call to say that you were gone.  I thought it would be the same this year, that I’d be waiting, in…
