#212 Departure Lounge

Mama is gone and I miss her already. In another day or two I will be used to her not being here again. It was such an awesome visit, full of laughter. I’m so grateful for my mum💜

#211 After Life Encore

Tonight is Mama’s last night. We made tacos and potato and leek soup, both delicious! I had been telling Mama and Mr Notebook about the show After Life on Netflix. I absolutely loved it when I watched it. I can’t remember, but I may have written about before. It stars Ricky Gervais and he is…
