I have an old mobile and am always having to delete texts to enable me to send others becasue I retain too many special or funny ones. But today I decided that I would actually put some of Niobe's onto a document so I could save them and clear them off my phone. Now I've typed them up I see them as a small snapshot of our relationship and I'm glad I've done it. Here are some of my favourites from the last couple of years...
Just been talking to Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee! Strange. X

Crazy rain!!!! I’m wearing flipflops!

I need you. I’ve never had so much to do :( xx
Mum I’m so sorry, I don’t want to ruin your evening which I hope you’re enjoying but I took the opportunity of you not being there to practice on the sewing machine as I was going to use it for your xmas present. I think the needle has snapped or something. So sorry. If I remember correctly this always used to happen in textiles and didn’t seem to be too much of a problem. I’ll pay for what it takes to fix it. Sorry I shouldn’t have used it without your permission I just wanted to practice as I really wanted to make you something for xmas. Love you xxx
I’VE FINALLY MADE MY FIRST EVER BATCH OF BUTTERFLY CAKES!!
Also I could really have done with a chat today, just to let you know – not to make you feel bad or anything xx
HAPPY BIRTHDAY I LOVE YOU MASSES YOU OLD DRUNKxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (it was my 50th!)
Overnight in a cold tent I have a hoody on and socks but must admit the socks have let me down.
Come soon, I’m cold, xx
I’m moving to the sea.x
Just had a career lesson. Want to open a tea shop in Southwold. Xx
Why is it that people say something & it goes in one ear and out the other. But then someone else says it and you believe them? Not a rhetorical question. I’d like an answer. LY.xx
What happened to the bacon butties?
I need a hug when I get home. Xx
Hi Mum. I missed you today. It’s been raining all day and all my stuff is soaking . :( Walked so far today. I am dead. I needed you in my pocket earlier :( xxx
The pocket reference is to a message I gave when she was little - that if she was ever alone and afraid and needed me all she had to do was put her hand in her pocket and squeeze very hard and she should be able to feel me squeezing back and know what she had to do next. And nobody would know...I didn't expect her to be doing it for so many years!
Does anyone else do this? I'm hoping she won't mind my sharing these!
