I had high hope for the start of 2017 but fate had other plans. I say goodbye instead to my last living grandparent. My nan. A wonderful woman who I loved very much. She tried to teach me to cook but failed, not because I was bad at it, but because she was :) She encouraged me to do what I loved and worried about me, mostly being unmarried but also when health problems struck me over the last few years.
I loved her whether we were sat working our way through crossword puzzles nicely or when she was threatening to whack me with her slipper for being cheeky. She always took care of me when I was little and kept a Galaxy Bar for me in the fridge.
I will miss her always.
