It HAS been a while

It has been months since I last posted. I am sorry for that, but life got VERY busy.

From January 21 to March 19th, I was visiting my precious heart-twin sister Rossie, in hospital three times a week. It meant that life was very far from routine. When I was home, I was thinking about Rossie, and wondering what was happening, especially when she was very sick...

Thanks to COVID-19, my visits were stopped from March 20, though I was absolutely thankful for our youngest sister who continued to visit Rossie every day... 

Then April 13-18, I stayed at the hospital every night... My Rossie... my closest sister, friend and supporter was dying at 40.5 years...

At just after 2am on 19th March, I was sitting asleep beside her, holding her hand... and she passed away. Expected, but devastating all the same. She had been so sick, and I am thankful she is now at peace with her Lord in heaven.

Just thought I'd share a few pictures of my precious sister...

Me feeding her sultanas when we were little ☺


With her "almost daughter"

With her "almost son"

We did say the same words at the same time, wear the same colours, thought the same things, and loved each other through thick and thin!

I haven't been knitting much at all. Just doing some colouring... 
But some day soon, the knitting needles will call! ☺


  1. Beautiful memories! Love the pics with the kids and also the 2 of you with matching shirts. <3
