The methodist minister who conducted my mother's funeral has suffered the return of her cancer and the treatment has meant that she is suffering from hair loss. So I made a parcel of three of my hats and sent them off to her. I received a message from her, via a friend, that she is too unwell to write to thank me but wished me to know that the hats were appreciated and that this one is the one that she wears around the house. The chenille wine coloured one is reserved for special occasions along with the green Fair Isle beret.
Thrilled to think that they are being put to a good use. :) However, I would be more pleased if she had no use for them at all and here's hoping that she manages to beat the dreaded 'C' yet again.
