“We all have a mother figure, whether your mother is no longer here, your aunty is your mother or your father is your mother- we all know the love of a mother.

My mother is a formidable African woman. A no tears, no fuss kind of woman. She loves Marks and Spencer’s like a true Anglophile and can either be found cleaning, in her garden, eating cake or watching Escape to the Country.

I love my mother very much and hope to one day adopt her strength, wisdom and stoicism.”
