Thank you Karen.I apologize to the entire board for my earlier comments.
Was I close to my Mum? I once would have thought so, now, I do not know.
I guess I blamed/blame her upbringing for the unhappy place that I am in now, so, I do not know that I can say that we were close.
The fact that I spent a lot more time with her than any woman of my age would have been doing, was only because I have no kids of my own, and she was always good company.
The really sad thing is that I do not think I loved her, because I really only learnt how to love through the relationship with my dog.
This is turning into a long ramble so I will stop there.
