Happy Birthday Mum

My Mum would have been 63 today. My sister and I went and did some nice things that she liked to do, to remember her in a way she would hopefully appreciate. Spending too much on make up at the Christian Dior counter in Harvey Nichols was one such thing, and today was the first time we had been back there since she died in 2006. And oddly, the Christian Dior counter had vanished! So no memorial lippy-trying-on...
Thirty years ago today I gave Mum "Woman" by John Lennon on 7" vinyl for her birthday...
"I'm forever in your debt...I love you"
Love, love, love xxx

Rent a Gob

I think my writing is about to change again.
I have been writing elliptically and that has been a good and useful process.
Now for some bile and purging and self indulgence.
Maybe on here and maybe not.
I am not going to keep my mouth shut anymore.
It's time to be gobby.
