So strange to think that our gorgeous friend died two years ago today. Raise a glass if you’re able and toast her on her way.

There has been lots of lovely press coverage for the paperback of our book that came out last week. It is selling well and I continue to receive so many notes from so many people so grateful for the book being out there – it is such a comfort to know that Aunty Bobs is still being helpful.

Here is a link to one of the talks I did at the Edinburgh Book Festival. It was recorded for BBC Radio Scotland, and is about 40 minutes long, starting about 3 minutes in: https://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/play/b0bhrhd4

Cor – I just managed to insert that as a link…

I am carrying on the conversation about cancer, death and grief everywhere I go. People seem to be so grateful to be able to talk openly – hopefully we can all try and learn this new language we have not been taught. I am appearing in October at the Cheltenham Festival to do a talk with a Palliative consultant called Kathryn Mannix who has written a beautiful book called “With The End in Mind” about ‘death in the age of denial’ – she and I seem to be Mr & Mrs Death now…

I also appeared on the podcast “You, Me and The Big C”, run by the wonderful journalist Rachael Bland, who died of cancer last week, aged 40. You can find it via your podcast provider or here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06hkhx7

And I am still very much carrying on the conversation with my beautiful sister. She is still very much front and centre in my life, and I assume will be until I get dug in beside her…

Love to all
