I have been blessed with the two best sisters anyone could wish for, we have always been incredibly close and supportive of each other. My nearest sister (in both age and geography) has always been very enthusiastic about this blog, and has often mentioned how she loves when I personalise the posts, mentioning different family events and occasions. She told me that when the blog started that I sounded like quite the alcholic!! (not bad for someone who has about two drinks a week!)
It is with the heaviest possible heart that I speak about her recent death in this post - she was such a huge part of my life that this tragic event cannot go unmentioned. She was always the most generous of people and even at this time she has given me the most precious of gifts - to be allowed to share in the care and nurturing of her three wonderful young children - they were the center of her world, and I just hope I can do half as good a job as she would have.
