Norma had been a Mumsnet regular over the years across the boards, with a real zest for politics, feminism and strong opinions about Boris Johnson, as anyone at the MN 15th birthday party will tell you. Remembering THE Heckle which was epic. Love her for it. She also ran the Christmas appeal which would have been an astonishing amount of work. She cared enough for others to make it happen. Norma genuinely touched the lives of so many here on Mumsnet, ours included. Such a compassionate beautiful soul.
It was desperately shocking to hear of her death in August. She had been very ill and in the end her body couldn’t cope any more. Devastating for her husband and their wonderful children, their families and friends. They will miss her terribly.
Norma really wasn’t one to burden others with her worries, but was a very kind and selfless friend. So supportive of others. Generous to a fault in many ways, and very bloody entertaining. We can all learn from her.
As you will remember, we made a second blanket to Auction for Refuge and this will take place during our Christmas 2021 sale. The family blanket is on the right, the Auction one on the left.
Thank you so much everyone xxx
