The toughest of times

I can’t write much
I just don’t have the words and I’m not sure I actually ever will, however with emails coming in and staying there unanswered, calls and messages remaining ignored and unreturned I need to explain the silence a little.


As you all know my Mother-in-law is an amazing lady, a lady who everyone loves. She has this magic way of warming everyone and even if you’ve met her only once you’ll always fondly remember her.
She has been battling the absolute bitch that is Cancer,  she is my reason for doing the Race for Life next week.
Sadly we are preparing and spending time all together for our final days with this wonderful lady.
Nothing more can be said, It’s just not fair. 

I’ve shouted and screamed with the whole family, it doesn’t change things, I bloody wish it did and could.  I would give anything to take this pain away from my family, those I love and adore.

Thanks for understanding and for all your support and if you can spare just a pound or two please could you consider sponsoring Emmy and I for next week’s race – you can click the badge below to donate or visit

  1. It's the most horrific disease, there's nothing harder than watching loved one deal with it. I hope it's monitored well and she's as comfortable as can be. Prayers and thoughts with you all x

  2. Thinking of you lovely lady. There are no clever words right now but I will try. Make memories whilst you can – they will sustain you in what lies ahead. I know a little of how you will be feeling having lost my parents with mum to cancer but each experience is an individual one. Integrate the best of this special lady into how you and the children live your lives. So sorry you are going through this. We love deeply and then the loss is so very painful. Take very good care of you at this challenging time
