From a writery high to heart break

How quickly life can change.

Friday morning I was winging my way back from the fantastic Murder They Wrote event in Wellington on a happy writery high, and then on Sunday morning I was reeling with shock at the death from SIDS of my dear little baby great-niece.

It has been a tough week.

Thank you for your kind thoughts, everyone. It is such a loss, and we feel keenly that we will never get to know this precious little girl properly.
