The notion of a ‘support bubble’ is something we’ve become very familiar with this year but, of course, that handful of people we rely on for counsel, care and cheerleading isn’t always family. Or sometimes it is, but not in the way you’d expect. The trio of moving memoirs from page 44, written by Andi Osho, Nadia Owusu and Alexandra Heminsley respectively, perfectly capture the essence of this. I love the way the women in Owusu’s life filled the space that her mother had left behind, and the bravery and grace with which Heminsley has navigated the seismic shift in her relationship to move forward as a LGBT+ family.

KEEP ON TRUCKING In our February issue, Clover Stroud wrote beautifully about adjusting to change, even in the darkest times. ‘When it feels as if you’re travelling through more darkness than light,’ she wrote, ‘the trick is to keep going.’ This resonated with Emma Greaney, who got in touch. ‘I felt compelled to write to you as I have just read Reset Your Sat Nav by Clover Stroud, and it struck an almighty chord with me,’ she wrote. ‘I’m returning home to Dublin from Edinburgh for my beautiful mum’s funeral. She passed away after a long and courageous battle with lung cancer. I am consumed by grief and loss, which are made more difficult by the continued Covid restrictions.
