It was just this morning I was lamenting the last drops of my favourite fragrance. Kingdom by Alexander McQueen. It was discontinued a couple of years ago. I clearly remember walking out the front door on the way to preschool wondering if they ever re-release a fragrance. I know they do. But not often.

And then after a quick spell at the shops, Tiny and I came home, lunched, faffed around the house and then she went to bed.

I got online only to discover that the creative zeitgeist Alexander McQueen has died. Tragic. A real creative, witty, clever genius.

What do you say when someone so great dies?

All I can think to say is, if you need help, or someone to talk to, please do, maybe, hopefully, it will help.

I have obviously been living under a rock today. What an absolute awful tragedy.
