slightly over a year later and the devastating news became reality. no longer ignorant to cancer. it happened to us! every single infection that came his way was fought with determination. everything that might prolong life for a moment longer was done. from the get go it was an uphill battle but one fought relentlessly. sadly the fight is over. a life taken too soon. a life im proud to say I was part of. peaceful dreams adrian. thank you for giving me your daughter to look after. and look after her I will. REST IN PEACE

give me a book and some music and im happy! il actually sit down and forget about everything. forget the washing. forget there's dishes and just get lost. try talking to me when iv a book in my hand and you'll be talking to yourself. not into the idea of reading books online although I do see the benefits. im a good old fashioned paperback girl, hate a hardbacked book. no mistaking when iv read a book as it'l look like its been through the wars. the worse it looks, the better the book and that's the truth of the matter.

how hard is it to tick a box and put a stamp on a self addressed envelope? seemingly very! manners cost nothing...
weddings really show you, whos with you and whos against you. it also shows the people that are too wrapped up in them selves.
the purpose of sending a save the date one year in advance is to allow the people who want to attend to make arrangements with difficult employers. dont talk shit when you receive your invitation 6 weeks before the big day saying you cant get time off when you have had a full year to organise it.

to think that my beautiful brooke was once just two small cells amazes me. looking back at photos from when she was born and seeing such a helpless defenceless little being, compared to the walking talking inquisitive toddler she is now totally takes my breath away. if your lucky enough to have met her, you'l know how affectionate and pleasant she is, how sweet and sensitive and how much shes loved. a day doesnt pass without me telling her how special she is. shes an angel sent to me from god and il always be thankful for the honour. beautiful brooke thank you for choosing me to be your mummy.

a number not yet forgotten
a yesterday and tomorrow
a broken heart and a goodbye
a river cried
a door closed
a chapter read
a new beginning
