She’s absolutely livid that her sister, living back here in Aus whilst she is in Canada, hasn’t picked up a present brought back by somebody visiting her in Canada. And she endlessly berates me about it, to which diatribes I am generally soothing about.
But today business stuff and the repercussions have made me feel very down and I just can’t take on the squabbling sister rivalry. So I asked her not to involve me in the dispute because I couldn’t choose between my daughters. I asked her to look at what her sister has done and whether it was malicious or not and she came back to me with “Yes! She’s evil spawn!’.
I laughed for a good ten minutes straight. I am Queen Mother, She who is Supremely Bad, and I make girlchildren in my own image!
