For 2019, I had a different type of bonfire night. It was lovely, wholesome and warm.
Mum would love these rainbows.
But this is my world. Those were the cards I had been dealt. I have been living without my Mum for 14 months now. I have been doing okay.
I cannot wait to be Evee in my new life, and for Katie to be Katie in hers. I am ready for it now.
The sun is still in the sky and shining above you. Thank you for coming on this journey with me.
When my Mum passed away, I willed my life to stay exactly how she left it – perfectly untouched like the crisp layer of newly fallen snow, blanketing my life. I daren’t take a step forward in fear of altering what she had left. I awkwardly lived around her belongings, preserving her life in our home.
And here we are, with a whole life in plastic bags.
