Kate Stead - Where's Mum
Remembering how I was sent off to school with a hanky pinned to my uniform every day makes me very sad for that little girl who felt like her world had come to an end when she came home from school to find her mother being taken off to hospital in a coma. Mum pulled through, but she was away long enough to make me feel like my childhood had come to an end. Pinning my own hanky to my uniform in the mornings was an awful reminder of her absence.
