I wrote this blog in Caffè Nero on my stepmother’s 51st birthday on 23rd July 2020. I’ve struggled to post this since, because it acts as a diary entrance rather than a blog. But, I know the Art of Grieving is a slow and traumatic one filled with many different stages, and this feels like a positive next step. My step-mother died on 5th December 2019, two days before I was supposed to return home from my travels in Thailand. She was so excited for me to go travelling, and I regretfully didn’t keep her updated with my travels because I was going to tell her everything when I came home and could do it in person. Obviously that day never happened.
