DEDICATION

 

For Betty. My heart misses you every day.

And for the foxes out there. You’re awesome. Read and follow the instructions. It doesn’t matter if they’re on a tampon pack, pill box, pregnancy test or coffee machine, they exist so your product works properly for you.

Says the woman currently wearing a beautiful dress that is a whole foot shorter than the designer intended because she put it through the washing machine instead of having it dry cleaned #impatient

For Foxes’ Sake is dedicated to the brilliant women who have helped shape my life.

For my mother, Betty, who I miss every day, and had the best man advice in the world, despite her obvious winces at knowing what I was getting up to. She was nothing short of an inspiration and the epitome of determination to live the best life possible despite everything. Betty was one of the strongest women I have ever met and I am honoured she chose to be my mother. You have my heart, mum, every single day. Life is unfair and if sheer will could have gotten you through you would have lived to 150. I miss you with every breath.

For Janine, I hope you and mum are dancing on tables wherever you are. For Sue, who has the most special place in my heart; I am so honoured that you have opened your life and family to me with such warmth and love. For Robyn, who has been a true friend in every sense of the word. Rob, you have no idea how important you are to me.

And for Rhonda, who stood up to be counted when it wasn’t her responsibility, but did it anyway and changed my life. At a party after watching her partner trip over, Rhonda also coined the phrase: “Just how I like my men – on their backs with their legs in the air”. All awesome, brilliant women. Thank you for being you.
