It's been a few weeks since I last blogged, and I've gone back and forth on whether to share some recent sad news, but then I decided I couldn't go about my normal writing without acknowledging my grandma. She passed away two weeks ago and I'm completely heartbroken.
My grandma is my inspiration, my best friend, my mars bar, and so much of who I am is thanks to her. I miss her unwavering humor, wit, and love. 
Here's to you, Eileen Campbell Holt, there's nobody like you.

  3. That's very sad news. I wish you and your family all the best dealing with this very difficult time. As joellestlaurent said, it may only make it harder at the moment, but the fact that she was able to have such a great influence on your life is a special thing. x

  4. I am so sorry to hear about your loss, I lost my maternal Grandma 4 years ago and it left me heartbroken. I still miss her and think about her everyday, but its not as painful now, and most of the time I think about how lucky I am to have had her in my life.

  10. Oh Natasha, this is so sad... What an interesting lady she was. Reading her account of living in Hull during the war was a wonderful moment last year... My own grandmother passed this year as well.
    Big hugs, Adrienne
