It was just all so unfair! Feeling angry and sad I threw myself onto the bed desperately clinging to a pillow, letting it smother my sobs and dry my tears. My room was the smaller one of two rooms on the second floor, barely enough room for a bed, a bedside table with a candlestick on it and an old dresser that looked ancient. Continue reading

-“Finally dad! You’re always late!” I said when he pulled alongside the curb. -“Aw Jack, I’m not that late. I just had to pick up some stuff from work, you know how it is.”  Yeah. I did know how it was. Looking in through the window of the front passenger seat I saw it was full of manila folders and thick stacks of paper. Sighing, I threw my backpack into the back seat and got in after it. Continue reading

I woke up this morning with my son right beside me, pushing gently on my shoulder. With a big grin on his face, he squeaked out a cheery “Dad!

Hunden låg som vanligt vid fotändan och snarkade och mös som bara han kan. Innan jag ens hunnit svänga fötterna över sängkanten så hör grabben ett ljud i trapphuset och skiner upp som en sol. “Mamma! Mamma kommer!”. Ida har jobbat natt för första gången på ett tag, vilket innebär att hon kommer hem på morgonen. Både grabben och hunden studsar ur sängen för att hälsa mamma-matte välkommen hem. Hon låter jätteglad och kelar med Bamse en sväng, och försöker kommunicera åt grabben att han kanske borde ta på sig lite kläder för att gå till dagis. Continue reading
