I read today that Jenni Overend died last year. The link includes one of her final poems. She was the author of Hello Baby, which was a favourite of Mikaela's when I was pregnant with Eliane. It is a wonderful book.
As well as a "celebrated children's author" she was a mother, a wife, a grandmother, and she was only 55. I know this happens all the time, but this story made me particularly sad, maybe because of her poem.
RIP Jenni Overend. I hope you are.
