Tomorrow is my dad’s 82nd birthday and the first one that my mum won’t be around to celebrate with him. I rang him Sunday morning just to see how he is. At the moment I do wish my dad lived closer so we could have seen him tomorrow. I know we chose to move and I don’t regret it as I love living where we do. My mum dying made me appreciate how old and frail my dad has become. At least he sounded a bit more cheerful when we spoke.
I wrote a short note to Anthony last week asking him to get in touch with my sister. As far as I’m aware he still hasn’t responded to her. I didn’t expect Anthony to respond to me as he didn’t when I emailed him about my mum’s death. My sister doesn’t deserve the silent treatment of him though. I have tried yet again so I shall leave well alone for the time being until something else happens that I feel Anthony should know about.
