My Nan passed away on Friday morning while I, my Mum Sue, my Aunty Di & my cousin Kerri sat by her side. Tomorrow is her funeral. I will be putting her dedicated copy of the book and a personal letter I wrote to her today in her coffin. (Coffin is such an awful word.) She always told me I'd grow up to illustrate Children's books.
Thanks Nan for the endless squiggles you used to do for me to finish off, the big cold glasses of apple juice, always having a supply of chocolates, having a great sense of humour, making me feel special and always making me feel like I could tell you anything. You've finally gone to join Pa. He's been waiting for you.
I'll be back in action creatively next week. Take care all :)
