on the 6th of april 2013 my mum passed. I remember waking up and choosing a horse, with my little 5 year old brother, each to bet on for the grand national. This was sort of a tradition as we had done it every year. Afterwards i remember going into my room and putting on saving private ryan and asking her to come watch it with me, as i know it was one of her favorite films. She did so and decided to bring her mirror, hair dryer and straighteners into my room and get ready for when her boyfriend pick her up, around 2pm. I remember her delaying her make up as she knew she would cry, as she used to say it was because she had a heart. I remember her contemplating vin diesel ,AGAIN, saying that he is a babe and all sorts. When she had done we sat down and watched some more of the film before her boyfriend came. I remember her calling up the stairs saying "im going sweetheart see you soon love you lots" and i replied "love you too and bye".. This happened to be the last time i saw or spoke to her, which in the manor that it happened is priceless. Seeing her beautiful smile and face as she made herself looking even more amazing then she already did, whilst watching her favirote film with me is amazing, and that memory is worth more to me then any money in the world.
My mum was an amazing mum, and i sometimes took her for granted. Now she is gone i cant stop feeling guilty, angry, sad and always asking myself what if i did that or did this. My mum was always there for me and although i have amazing friends and family i dont know how i am ever going to get over my mums death.
