EASTER MONDAY. Today was great! Went to the beach in the morning (burnt alive!) and went home after a ‘Mocka’ pie. When walked inside, felt the tension and when mum came home, she frowned when she got inside. The depression is overpowering. It got us all down.
Unfortunately, I can’t explain this. Perhaps the tension and guilt mentioned the day before – about not getting mum a present for Easter – was the driver for this? But I’m fairly certain mum wasn’t at all materialistic, so I doubt the lack of a gift would have upset her. It must have been something to do with …us BOTH being with dad….leaving her alone for ‘too long’?
