Yesterday was a very emotional day; It was my daughter’s leavers’ assembly at primary school and I spent the entire day crying on and off. I actually cried myself to sleep last night and I woke up today with a tension headache and the bulbous eyes of an alien.*
So I was already feeling a wee bit delicate when I read the news that the talented and inspirational Nora Ephron had died. I’m not in any fit state to write anything about it and wouldn’t manage to be as coherent and brilliant as my friend, Keris, anyway. Go read what she had to say instead.
*Yes, I know I have another child at primary school and that I’m very lucky to have a happy, healthy daughter who is growing up and that I am a wuss and should buck up and all of that. It’s the end of a lovely chapter in my precious girl’s life and I’m mourning its passing. I cannot help it.
