About Kate Mosse

There are always memories, thinking of the wonderful times in the past, and understanding that it is these shared stories that will make the loss that will inevitably come so much more painful.

Talk about the world's best job! A DOUGHNUT SCIENTIST reveals how she is creating a healthier future for bakery... Rosie is 90 and needs a wheelchair but she still has a real zest for life that puts the rest of us to shame But even with Mosse’s advantages “it’s hard”, she bluntly admits, and “often it feels as if there are no good options, only less bad ones”. She notes that the origin of the word care is the old German word chara for “burden of the mind”.

The paradox about carers is that a strong satisfaction lies in “fixing things” – making someone better, cheering them up – but that may not be possible. Mosse admits sadly that “however much you do, it never feels enough.” Steve Harvey praises wife Marjorie while acceptingTelevision Icon honor at the Grio Awards... after she slammed 'foolish' cheating rumorsMy husband and I met at school when we were 15.
