It is all a symptom, a sign like a burning bush without the smoke, it all means I am away a lot.
I am remote parenting and feeling guilty.
I am single parenting the kids as a byproduct of earning the family crust. Life was not meant to be this way when I was a teeanger. I was going to be...... a proper Dad.
I appear to be a "the Visiting rights" bloke who looks a bit like the foto on the walland without the court papers. I may be the man putting Diss in Dysfunctional.
School interviews missed, the footie game foregone, the serious talk over ciggy mis-used unsaid, the laughter over the family legends not re-told and the years are gone.
Time to turn new leaves before the autumnal years.
