Faith – Edessa
Currently browsing category



Yesterday was Faith’s birthday. She would have been four. We took some flowers to her grave. Someone else had been before us and left a tiny Christmas tree and some little pottery animals. It’s good to know that other people are remembering her too.

In memoriam

Faith is dead.

Faith died in the night on Monday night. I found her in her bed on Tuesday morning. She’d been dead for several hours. She’d been a little bit under the weather lately. On Monday morning she was absolutely fine, bright and perky, and helped us dig the car out of …

Merry Christmas!

Have a very merry Christmas everybody! I took Faith into the garden this afternoon to build a snowman. (‘Snowmannn!’) Her idea of building a snowman was to let Mummy assemble a nice big pile of snow and then step into it shouting ‘And go woo!’ And repeat this several times. …

Faith is two years old!

We took Faith to the zoo yesterday to celebrate her second birthday. The original plan was that we go to the zoo in the morning and have a party at her grandparents’ flat in the afternoon. But Robin’s piano recording session, which was supposed to have finished then, ended up …

Shampoo review

Tonight at bathtime I was washing Faith’s hair. After I’d wet her hair, she reached for the shampoo. I put a tiny little dab of it on her hand and she rubbed it into her hair, or rather her forehead with me directing her to move her hand to the …
