Peaches Geldof

This evening the news broke that Peaches Geldof has died at the age of just 25 leaving behind 2 sons both aged under 2.

I don't usually post about celebrities but this news has left me feeling numb tonight. This is the kind of thing that frightens me as a mother, leaving my children while they are still nothing more than babies. It is one of those things I have thought about in the middle of the night if I can't sleep.

Some of us will remember Peaches pre children, the fun loving party girl who like many of us(me included) settled down once small people came along,
Peaches was pretty open about her life as a mum, she was vocal about her parenting style, shared photos of her children and her life with us all via Instagram and Twitter, and of course there was her appearance on this morning debating with Katie Hopkins. It was like we knew her and we liked what we saw, she was easy to identify with and she clearly doted on her children.

Of course there has been speculation over the cause of her death but right now that shouldn't matter. Whatever happened 2 little boys will be going to bed without their mummy and that is tragic.

Rest in peace Peaches x
