Collage for Auntie Jill – March ’17

I have a wonderful mother. She and I are so close, we are so similar in personality and in looks. I take after her English Rose heritage (I just missed out on the blue eyes goddammit!).

When my two eldest brothers were wee bubs and started preschool, my Ma was an Occupational Therapist (she worked with kids who had learning disabilities) and she met Jill, who was my brothers preschool teacher.

That was over 30 years ago. They have been best friends since. Jill has been with my mum and my family through so much in that time, good times, bad and the REALLY bad.

So Jill is my surrogate aunt. And she is very dear to me.
