Today is a bit of a sad day for me.... My Dad has broken up with his Fiance. I liked her a lot and they were so perfect for each other.
My Dad has had lots of girlfriends since he and my Mum (who is a truly amazing women, but her and my Dad just weren't meant for each other) broke up 12 years ago and none of them ever really fitted in. But Sally was great, we all liked her, even my Mum!
For the last couple of years whenever I think about my future children I always think about them having 3 Grandmas. It's really strange for me to realise that they will probably never meet Sally now. My niece (Little Miss A) really likes Sally too, and I am wondering how this is going to affect her. She thinks that Sally and my Dad are a package deal. I don't know if she will understand what breaking up is and whether or not she will accept a new girlfriend or keep asking where Sally is?
My Dad is coping in his usual way, by moving on as quickly as possible. It's like he turned off his feelings the minute they broke up. He doesn't seem to be sad or happy about it, just excited about the future and what it holds.......
I wanted to call Sally today and let her know that I am going to miss her, but I didn't. I will, but I think I would have cried if I had done it today...... I will definitely do it tomorrow, but I am wondering what happens after that. Do I still send her a Christmas card? Do I still invite her over for dinner everynow and again? I guess either way I am really going to miss her.
