how to make a cake
how to be a mother to two little boys under two; never mind the dishes, play them music, read to them and love them
how to sew pajamas, curtains and anything else that might be needed
how to write a covering letter for a job application and a proper thank you note after a party
how to knit very very neatly, exactly the way she did!
how to speak my mind
how to respect every person I meet
how to know when you’ve met a good man and how to let him love you his way …
We lost our Mum this week, aged ninety-one; she didn’t want us to be sad, her life was long and very happy
but I miss her a lot already, she was very special …
thank goodness for my sons, cousins and friends: have never had so many hugs in a row!
this was one of Mum’s favorite songs from the sixties:
thank you for reading, take care
love, Barbara x
