This week's gallery is Mothers.
My Mother doesn't listen to me any more, I'm not sure she ever did much but now not at all.
I tested the theory this week by mentioning I'd been to London, she told me all about her recent, and not so recent visits. I even threw in the odd "Back to me" comment to see if she would pick up on it.
She seriously does not listen to me, the problem is I've all but stopped trying to even try so I get messages of 'not seen you much' a lot to leave me feeling guilty.
It's always been a difficult relationship, it isn't getting any less so.
I'm no longer sure which way up the balance of responsibility is. Who is the cared for, or if either of us are.
Relationships are sometimes an illusion.
