For my mum Edwina Rose - so much missed and loved, every day of my life. I am sorry I let you down the way I did.I hope you can forgive me. I love you, Mum xxx

And for June, my dearly loved mother-in-law. Get well, dearest June, we need and love you so much. xxx


Mother is just a little girl who trod my path before me;
Just a bigger wiser little girl who ran ahead.
Bigger, stronger, wiser girl who always watches o'er me.
One who knows the pitfalls in the rugged road I tread.

Mother is a playmate who will always treat me kindly -
Playmate who will yield me what true happiness demands.
She will never let my feet stray into brambles blindly -
Mother's just a bigger little girl who understands.

Mother is an older little playmate who'll befriend me -
Yesteryear she travelled in the path that's mine today.
Never need I fear a foe from which she may defend me -
Faithful little pal who ran ahead and learned the way.

Mother's Day is always bittersweet for me. I so wish Mum was still here to share this day with me and the grand-daughters she never got to know.

I am feeling very guilty as I have been very bad at commenting on blogs lately - I do apologise. I have been visiting you all and keeping up with what's going on but somehow the extra effort involved in posting a comment has been a step too far for me - I'm shattered. Everything seems to require huge amounts of energy and I have been working quite a few extra hours which have soaked up a lot plus I'm trying to get back into my exercise routine.

The housework is building up and the spring sunshine is really cruel, showing up all the dirt and dust accumulating everywhere. I need to do massive amounts of cleaning but i can't find the time or the energy!

My "To Do" list keeps getting longer; i have stuff to do at work, for the business, in the house and on a personal level. Help!!

On the positive side; I'm enjoying (well, LOVING) riding again. Life is ok, fab at times...but I haven't enough hours in the day for stuff.

I'll make sure I'm a better blog friend in future; I promise!
