A train ride 

Today I was feeling a bit better and went to see my dad for a couple of hours. My dad and I have had a difficult few years after he left my mum after nearly 40 years of marriage with no warning at all. It has taken me a long time to come to terms with what he did, but we are slowly rebuilding the wonderful relationship we once had. 

The train ride, is as always, stunning. The Train goes along the south Devon coast line and is one of the most beautiful rides in the UK, even the chief executive of Great Western Railway agrees! 

We had a nice cup of coffee and spent some time chatting about neutral things. It’s still best that way. If anyone else is struggling with a relationship with a parent just remember that they are getting older and you owe it to yourself to try. That is all: try. For me it is very painful, but I don’t want to live with regrets.
