This was our new family portrait – the three of us, sitting side by side, staring at the space where Simon used to be.


In life there are milestones. Events that marks out certain days as being special from other days.
They begin before we're old enough to know about them, like the day we uttered our first proper word, and the day we took our first steps. We made it through the night without a nappy. We learnt other people have feelings, and the stabilizers came off our bikes.
If we're lucky – (…) – we get help along the way.
