For Hil, who died yesterday. Such a vibrant and colourful friend who I had the joy of doing children's holiday clubs and weekly children's study groups with for many years. So delighted that she lived to enjoy her grandchild for a few months. Fond and happy memories.

Beautiful, Helen. Before I read what you wrote, I thought it was so elegant and also had a sort of sad, wintery feel to it, so a lovely tribute to your friend. I'm so sorry you have lost her.
