The 2nd of March is a special day in our family.
It celebrates the arrival of two very special people.
My mum, and my Nat.
Yep. I cleverly gave birth to mum's first grandchild on Mum's birthday. I'm just cool like that ;)
So, understandably, this year, I am approaching the 2nd of March with such a jumble of emotions. I am trying so very hard to be excited for my big girl who is thrilled to be turning 10, but I am so so sad to be facing the day which SHOULD be celebrating the life of another amazing person.
I felt as if mum and her and Nat's special together day needed to be honored in some way this year. I didn't want anything maudlin, or sad, I don't want Nat's day to be marred by my sadness.
It came to me one night...
Mum loved jewellery. Nat is starting to love jewellery, and it has a certain permanance to it.
So I got her a locket.
Engraved on the back is what mum and Nat used to call themselves 'Twinny sames'.
