Dear Mum... Your Swiss Diary

Dear Mum

every year since i've been in Switzerland, I've sent you a diary - with gorgeous pics of Switzerland on one side and space to write on the other.
Up until about 2017, you wrote in it faithfully. When I found the stack of diaries in August, when I was clearing the house, I realized that in 2018 and 2019, your writing detoriated adn dropped off, but other people would jot notes in the diary. Even though you couldn't use the diary any more, the diary would always be by your armchair and you'd often look at it.

This year i've sent you a new diary. I know you cant use it and now you'll have no recollection of the significance. Selfishly, sending it has been more for me and my memories. But hopefully it will have a place of honour in your room and people will notice it or write in it. So I send it to you with much love and with many lovely memories of the trips you made here!
