Pamela I loved the bit about every girl needing an adoring daddy and Granpa, that whats been missing all my life as I had neither.
Vicky, I’m sorry to hear that. I had a wonderful grampa but my ’father’ left a lot to be desired!
Gramps, who came from a family of farmers, lied about his age in order to join the army in 1914 and spent the next 4 years in France. Luckily he survived and I spent most of my childhood, when not in school, clued to his side. Probably the happiest days of my life. I still miss him and really look forward to the day that I can throw my arms around him again.
As for the ’father’, sometimes it may be better if they were not around. Physical abuse always hits the headlines but mental, emotional and psychological abuse doesn’t get enough attention.
Sorry if I got a bit carried away there.
