No pleasing the missus and little'un.
For the past 2 years or so I've been planning a visit, with my bro, to the Shetlands, but work and home commitments have prevented us from going before now.
Now we are planning a trip for the weekend over the next couple of months, or at the very least, next spring. However, when I mentioned this to little'un she burst into tears. Some may say it's crocodile tears or kidology, but she was totally distraught. She is a bright kid and can understand her fragility with me not being there.
When I asked why she's so upset, she said she'll miss me. It's lovely to hear but must understand I have a life beyond work, hi-fi and home.
Mrs. P understands why I need to go but isn't totally happy.
This is something my bro and I must do... need to grasp the opportunity before I'm old and senile.
Joys of family life.
