Mum

I am sorry to report that my mum died on Saturday night, peacefully in the local hospital in Béziers. My brother and his partner were with her; I had gone home to sleep.

Your comments are very welcome, but please bear in mind that this blog is read by a lot of other people who knew and loved my mum, who spent an enormous amount of time and energy looking after her during her illness, and who will miss her very much.

Normal service will, I hope, be resumed shortly.
