Today I light a candle and raise a glass to my wonderful, beautiful Mummy who left us eleven years ago today two weeks short of her 78th birthday.
Glamourous, vibrant, exciting, exotic, volatile, full of fun, generous to a fault, family protector and much loved by the many, many people whose lives she touched in one way or another, Margaretha Gerrard is still sorely missed.

Here's to you Mummy.
I imagine you in heaven with Daddy, watching over us and raising a heavenly glass to each other and to those you left behind.
