We have also been spoilt and received lots of nice flowers from friends and colleagues of my parents this week.
The funeral was absolutely stunning and it was great to see so many friends and family. The songs that were sung were breathtaking and so comforting. We were in my favourite church which I spent a lot of time in growing up because I sung in a choir there. My sister made me laugh on the way to the church because she was worried there would be funeral crashers afterwards who just wanted free sandwiches and cake but I reassured her it would be highly unlikely for this to happen.
Time spent together is a valuable commodity and you just can't put a price on it. This is becoming more and more clear to me as I grow older. But let's rewind and look at how much I have changed in 25 years. I unknowingly gave Jay-Z competition for his lips when I was younger. Now not so much. Here I am a few hours old.
I have never been a big party animal and I still love going early to bed. Here I am 3 going on 63, having a nanna nap.
Whenever there was a party, I was always the last to leave the table. There was just so much deliciousness to be consumed and never enough time. Here I have been abandoned by my guests at my second birthday party.
I still love a good cake to this day so I haven't changed too much.
I also started with clown-makeup from an early age - I was destined to be a beauty-lover.
And I know I sound like a broken record but I would just like to again say how grateful I am for your loving words and strong support. You have made this a little easier for me and I feel like I have an online sisterhood full of strong women. If I could send you cake I would xxxx
