Really Sarah, what are you guys living with, apart from Richard not having BG, his life seems pretty damned spiffy right now.
I guess she still thinks my life is pretty dammed spiffy right now. Or else she wouldn't be randomly emailing me like it's all fine. Like she can be abusive, and then email to ask for something, then just ignore everything I say to her like I said nothing.
And that's ok, in many ways. It's quieter without the constant up and down of her moods. It's nicer without the vitriolic outbursts. But it's rubbish without Rich, without BG even for the paltry amount of contact her mother allowed. I won't get any now, I shouldn't think.
Time to sew. We're getting maudlin here.
Cup of tea, and writing laters.
