In the last two years Mum has has lived through some of the darkest days of her life.  Yet she's fought like a champion, smiled like a princess and made the most of every possible moment.

Alzheimer's and loss are not good partners, in fact they're arch-enemies.

In the middle of it all she even agreed to illustrate my book of kiddie's poems we'd enjoyed so much and she produced some extraordinary sketches.  We went ahead and published a limited edition of the book to celebrate her 80th birthday last year.  She couldn't believe it.

My heart bursts with pride every day I think about her and I love her to bits - so I'm sharing this because I think it's important for her to see that she still has so much to give, so much to share and for all of you out there, who may have a loved one with Alzheimer's so you can see what can be accomplished with a little nudging.

I love you Mummy
