But I am trying to write in the new Microsoft Word thing and...

On this day in 1950:
My Mum was born. She is an utterly wonderful woman and I look up to her so much. She still looks after me and has kept me going through many struggles despite not having such a good run herself. She’s the strongest woman I know and she always has the right answer and I can only hope to be half the woman as she is when I’m her age. She’s raised three strong minded girls all on...
