Sometimes Always, but, perhaps, sometimes more than others I miss my Mam. Most of the time it is a dull absence but occasionally something makes me want to lift the phone to someone no longer there. Apparently today is World Penguin Day (Wayback Machine as that seems down currently). I know this because I saw a list of things for it. Mam would have loved those paperclips, and a USB drive, and a lamp and ice cubes and penguin-opoly. All of it really. Sigh.
