 Thank you for all the lovely supportive comments following Mum's death. We are sorting out details and such. There is a lot more involved than any of us thought, but at least we have each other. 

The days I had in quarantine after Mum's death were really tough. It wasn't easy being so alone. Had a bout of tears and some anger when the quarantine rules were changed too. Two weeks. Just two weeks earlier and I could have flown in and seen Mum right away. I know I can't go back and change things but I was so sad and angry. I had tried to do everything right and it was too late.

I've been spending time with my sisters and we are slowly sorting things out. In between I have been getting out for walks and trying to take photos. I must admit though my heart hasn't really been in it. I suppose it will take time. The places I have been to mostly have memories of Mum and I visiting and then I miss her all over again. I am trying to think of the good times that we had together. 

A couple of phone photos


  1. So so sorry you couldn't see your mum. Glad you are with your family.

  2. That must have been terribly upsetting and I'd be very angry too but, hopefully, the anger will go after a while. I do feel for you so much. Yes, it will take time to get things sorted but one bite at a time, that's all it takes.
    All my love to you.

  3. I thought of you when I heard that the quarantine requirements were changed. I'm sorry you didn't get to see your Mum before she passed away.

  4. I just came on here to check if you posted anything. I have been thinking of and praying for you and your family.

  5. Will admit I am sad and angry on your behalf that the quarantine changes came too late for you. Maybe taking photographs of places you have been with your Mum can become cathartic...a way to remember her spirit and the best of times you had together. Good that you are with your sister and others to share this time of sorrow and remembrance. Thinking of you.
