Imagine marrying before you hit 20. Then, a year later, flying solo with your new baby while the love of your life was serving on the front line.
What if you were a stay at home mum for 30 years and when you turned 50 you embarked on another career? Consider what it would feel like to wear a nurse’s uniform with such pride that you could just about burst.
Picture heading into the kitchen knowing anything you made would be exactly what everyone wanted. Envision a world where your famous black forest cheesecake was longed for long after you were gone.
Bless her, that was my Annie (with an eye) x
