Been a long hard week

After last week’s debacle trying to get trains to Inverness and then trying to get home, I finally made it my step mum Mamie’s bedside in hospital. She was so weak and sickly from various illness and predominantly lymphoma cancer. Mamie was 78 when she passed away on Wednesday morning at around 2am with her daughter by her side.

I don’t know what to say about how I feel. She was my step mum for 25 years and was my daughters beloved Nana and grand and great grandmother to many of her own and the extended family’s kids. I have had to cancel my trip to Bristol Jongleurs at the weekend as her funeral is on Saturday. I don’t mind that as I would be distraught without my family at this time and sitting in a cold hotel and doing comedy isn’t the best way to deal with pain.

Though I am happy Mamie had a good long fulfilled life and that’s what we all need to celebrate.

So Very Very sorry for the family's loss. She did have a good life from what you tell, and was well loved. Her memories will be with you for ever. Take Care.
