i bet your boys will be happy well adjusted young men as they grow, you give them enough love and security to ensure that, although you are bound to feel sadness at everything that went on

You were staring into the gin dregs getting all sentimental about the good old days when arse would come home smelling of his new woman and subjecting you to his own special brand of mental torture. Ah memories...
