I would drive down there and often used it as a time to call Caroline and Marcus – whether it be to cry, talk about Mum or simply talk about nothing. My mum’s favourite view in the south was from Evening Hill overlooking Poole Bay and I had started to visit there, too. I would sit on the bench and look at the view and think about Mum. It was a calming place and I felt like it was my only escape. The only place where I could attempt to clear my head in the slightest. My dad’s sister, Aunty Anne, had come over from Germany to help, which was such a great support.
She bought four photos of images depicting letters spelling out the word ‘LOVE’, her family name. I adore that picture. I adore that name, too. We wandered along, street entertainers performing for the bustling crowds. Much to Mum and Hannah’s amusement, I was approached by a man who insisted that he put a bracelet on my arm. So kind. I soon realised this was not a gift and we scrambled about for some change. So expensive. By the time we had browsed the stalls and Hannah and Mum had made their purchases (along with having a good laugh at bracelet-gate), it was time to grab something to eat – we hit a pizza place for lunch.

They were offering a glimmer of hope – Mum was to go in on Monday to see if there was anything at all that they could do. I could tell that Hannah was getting excited by this news but I couldn’t see any shimmer in that glimmer. We took Mum to the hospital on Monday and dropped her and Dad there while Sarah, Hannah and I went to Costa Coffee in Poole town centre to wait until pick-up time. Although I was cynical about this appointment, there was a moment when I wondered if it could be Mum’s chance.
