1st MARCH ‘2019

Today, had she still been alive 😔 my nan (mum's side) would have been celebrating her 90th birthday today. xXx

I have just found footage recorded when she was in the #nursinghome on Fri 6th Jan 2012, 6 days before she passed away. It breaks my heart 💔 to know I did not record this last moment for longer. 😢 Something is better than nothing.🙏

On Monday, 9th Jan 2012, she was admitted to hospital for a urine infection. I went both days to visit her on Tues 10th & Wed 11th to tell her I wouldn’t be coming on Thursday because it was my birthday... so I would be back on Friday!

I can’t believe it’s 6yrs since she passed away on 12th Jan, my 31st Birthday!! 🥺 A day that I will NEVER forget and cherish every year... because only she and my fabulous God know how much she meant to me.💖

I am thankful, grateful and happy I got to know and spend quality time with her and have so many never-seen, priceless memories of our time together during the last ten years of her life living in a Nursing Home.

No matter her bad, wicked, and unkind treatment towards me in my younger years, I understand and forgave her years ago. I will never forget and have ‘no regrets’ because no one is ‘perfect’, and the experience was meant to be part of my life journey. 💯

There is always a deep story behind every person who comes across as either (Cold, Mean, Unempathetic, Wicked or Reserved) to name a few! No one is born ‘BAD’. It stems from their damaging childhood, which affects them. #Facts

Nan, whatever you are doing up above... I hope you have a Splendid day in heaven. I love and miss you so much. x

SAT 2nd FEB '2019:

It’s 09:50 am, and I’m sitting on my bed thinking about today when my Nan was laid to rest... having passed away on the 12th Jan (my birthday) 💚😢😘

I can feel her shining 🌞down on me RIGHT NOW through my window... as I’m writing this. 

I FEEL YOU... Nan ☺️

Only God knows how much I miss and love you 😘 but I know you are happy, safe and watching over/protecting me... alongside all my other Grandparents. 🖤

I may no longer have a ‘LIVING’ grandparent, but I know that you are all Blessing, Protecting and Wanting the best for me (and I)


Toast a drink 🥃 up in heaven for me... too.x

HBD 2 ME & R.I.P 😔 NAN


On this day in 2012, my beautiful and precious Nan passed away... on my Birthday 💔, and I cannot believe it’s been 6yrs already!

There is not a day that goes by when she is not in my thoughts, and even more so on this particular day... as it’s both mixed emotions of happiness for seeing another year 🙏🏾 and also sadness as I miss her so much.😘

I know she is watching over me, keeping me safe and proud of me, too, and my birthdays will always be a celebration for both our lives... we will meet again one day. xxx

💚Love you, Nan... always and forever. Cheers 🥂to us.☺️

JULY 4th ‘2017:

Good Afternoon Mi Lovelies. As I'm at home continuing to work on Chapter 7 from 2011 for my working-progress Book;

'The Journey of a Hidden Princess: A British Lady's Path to Discovery of Her African Royal Bloodline'

I came across this video, which I've just watched for the 1st time... I completely forgot I had this!

The same way I write my Diaries is no different to any video footage I've recorded over the years... meaning I write and record but never go back and read or watch anything. It may sound weird, but it's true.

So, I am literally a first-time reader or viewer of my material, and this video is just 1 of many that I'm sure I will share with you all.

This was the last birthday I would spend with my Nan back in March 2011... because she passed away ten months later on my birthday, 12th Jan 2012. 5yrs already, wow! She would have been proud of me and is watching over me from above.

I will forever be thankful for the care and help from all the staff at Castlebar in Sydenham Hill, SE26 (her 2nd Nursing Home) for all you have done for her.

To Val (carer) for also becoming a great friend to my Nan and me during her time there.

From me, Nan... a Big Thank You. x
