My mum surrounded by her family

This coming Mother’s Day will be my first one without my mum being around. It will be the first of many ‘firsts’ over this coming year as I sadly lost my mum at the end of November 2020.

To be honest I am dreading it. I am a mum myself and I’m still lucky to have my mother in law around, but there is a small part of me which just wants to stay in bed, close the curtains and make the day go away. …

Firstly, a bit of background about me….

I have been a Scrum Master for almost 6 years now and I have always loved my job, as to be honest it never actually felt like a ‘job’ to me. Instead, I felt as if I was hanging out with a group of cool people, facilitating and guiding them through a bunch of work that needed to be done. We would have a good chat afterwards about how we felt things went, before we would try again.

One of my key traits is that I have a heightened level of emotional intuition…
