Poor Dad - There's something about Mary...

May. 20th, 2011 12:02 pm Poor Dad

 So, my Dad's girlfriend has broken up with him :-(

They had been together for quite a while, and she was nice enough - they seemed to be doing ok - I think her ending it has come as rather a shock to him.
I was so pleased he had found her so quickly after the end of his previous long-term relationship, and this one was starting to look permanent....  alas, it was not to be.  

Also, my Dad's no angel, but he is a decent bloke, and the way that his girlfriend chose to end the relationship was really not very nice.  I won't go into details here as this post isn't locked, but she could have ended things in a far kinder way than she did.  It's not like there was any particular wrong-doing on either side to precipitate the split.  My Dad deserved better.  Ho hum.

I have to stay here today, to teach important exam lessons, and more of the same on Monday, but I am heading down to Orpington tomorrow morning to see him for the weekend and dispense hugs etc.  He is being brave, but I can tell he is hurting - my Dad is where I got my soppy emotional side from, not my Mum!  So this weekend I will be doing my best to cheer him up and help him 'process' things, probably through the medium of decent wine and a good chin-wag.

Please think warm thoughts in the general direction of my Dad in Orpington....  Thanks x x
