Me too, if it weren't for this bloody virus I would wish it to stay like this.I’ve quite enjoyed the peace and quiet of lockdown and not really looking forward to things going back to normal.
If we could have a new normal what would you wish for.
Yes I have. I have always been close to my children but we have daily conversations courtesy of Messenger and I (and they) really enjoy these. Once normality occurs - whatever and whenever that will be, this won’t be the same. They send photos and videos and we have an ongoing competition which I am especially enjoying.I’ve quite enjoyed the peace and quiet of lockdown and not really looking forward to things going back to normal.
The same with me and my SIL - Shes much more gentle on Zoom family meet ups than in Real Life!I am loving the new relationship with my sister . We are chalk and cheese and at times, her indifference to our dogs has upset me on their visits , no its angered me . Now, she is facing her own health challenge but also she and I are ringing one another much more often , she has even told me that she loves me ( a first ! ) and we are finding a bond which wasnt there before . So I like that during tough times , differences can be put aside , empathy can be found and new understandings that its fine not to be the same x
That’s good - I’m sure it will continue post virus times. My relationship with my sister has been non existent since lock down. Our only communication is when I have to inform her of anything to do with our late mum’s estate (I have been meticulous in making sure everything is transparent). I have literally done everything and continue to. I do not feel resentful - I am proud of how I have managed all these things and know mum trusted me. Once everything is wrapped up there will be nothing between my sister and me. Some relationships are just not meant to be. Mum was such a family person - very loving and interested in us all - not sure what happened with my sister along the wayand we are finding a bond which wasnt there before .
