In memory…

A beautiful submission from our hostess Christine Chester:

“My idea of domesticity was shaped by my mother who managed to hold down a job whilst keeping the house clean, clothes washed and ironed, jam and chutneys made, and even knitting jumpers. But for the last 6 years of my fathers life, her life was dominated by his absence of memory. Overnight, domesticity became a chore and a heavy weight on her life; her joy scrubbed out.”
