These hands…..they bathed, clothed and fed six daughters and for the most part as a single parent. They sewed all of our clothes and sometimes without the luxury of a sewing machine. They cooked our food, a lot of the time without a decent oven and washed hundreds of nappies using an old copper washer without a wringer.

They taught us to sew and knit and instilled a love of books.
They’ve cuddled and kissed and soothed grandchildren, great grand children and great, great grandchildren.
But on the Monday 25th June, just a few weeks short of her 94th birthday and surrounded by her six daughters our dear Mum passed away peacefully.
Miss you already mum.
