Is it still in your outbox? That would mean she hasn't seen it yet.

It is, but that doesn't mean she's coming back. Slightly better than being ignored tho.

Hello,
what exactly means " Besides, I know she's been up in Small Gods these past ten years. " (around page 110)

in Czech translation it says young Sam's mom is dead and buried at the cemetery of Small Gods,
which doesn't make any sense why is he trying to get his older self home for visit, tee and food.

thank you

Welcome to the site, sleam! :)

You are talking about Nightwatch I assume? Older Sam is talking about his mother in his time having been dead for ten years and buried in Small Gods Cemetery. When he goes back in time, the younger version of his mother is still alive. He doesn't want to see her because he wants to remember her how she was and would probably find meeting her unsettling after having seen her dead.

Young Sam wanting older Sam to meet her has more to do with young Sam being naïve and not understanding that taking your sergeant home was not the sort of thing you would do.

I wonder how dead. He's a copper, and I'm not sure what state she would have to have died in in order for Sam Vimes not ever want to see his mum again alive, younger, healthier, and happy. *pets poor Sam*

That's assuming that she was healthier and happy... younger Sam had just gotten the job and they were dirt poor. Also, he'd have had to resist trying to prevent her death, arranging for better lodging, more food money, etc., all things prohibited by the rules of the situation.

And seeing her might make him overcome with emotions. How would he explain that?

I realised that he might be overcome with emotion.

He changed the entire strategy of the barricades! The revolution was larger, there were more free steaks and food - I'd bet wherever Ms Vimes was, she got the better end of it!
