What we could be more normal than opening your address book at M, to look for a friends’s house number ,to send a card …and then feeling physically sick and sad at the same time ?
Seeing Rosie’s handwriting is a killer .
Like her sketches, it is HER .
I can see her ,feel her ,smell her .
Unlike a photo ,there is movement , grace,chaos, creativity and soul .She is on the page .It winds me .
On page 4 of my ‘M’ section, amongst all my neat entries written within the lines contained within the box headed Name/Address/Mobile/Email , scrawled across 2 boxes are Holly Mills Mob , with a swirly line underneath and then 2 numbers 075******43 and 077******14, then in
further down the page ….Manpreet and 2 more numbers , then further down the page in thick blue running-out felt pen , for no reasons I can possibly understand ‘Sally Tye called ‘.
I can only guess the page was open when Rosie took the call .
I need chocolate – that sort-of helps .
