    My mum's absence is massive and it really gets to me. To deal with it now I'm gonna start making some of her home cooked meals , I think that will make me feel like we have a connection and she made delicious stuff hah aswell and food is helpful for everything isn't it ?

    Hi fred2018,

    Thanks for your post. This sounds like a really good idea and a great way to stay connected to your mum.

    My grandma (Nanna) used to make scones so I'd always try to make them. They'd be a total flop but just kneading the dough made me feel so close with her. What are the meals your mum used to make?

    Oh yeah scones are nice that's nice to hear you have that connection, ah she made a lot of things but one was Rogan Josh that I enjoyed so i'll give that a go. She also enjoyed coconut rice with stir fry , all tasty stuff.
