The secret diary of a single parent bloke
Today I received an apology- a very important one, that I was only too glad to receive. It was from my Dad, and it meant a lot to me. All through the marriage problems and subsequent breakup, he’d been on Katrina’s side rather than mine. Actually, it’s a little unfair of me to say that he’d taken a “side”, but he was certainly seeing things from her point of view rather than mine.
She can be very charming, and had certainly convinced Dad that she was the innocent party in all of this, and that I was the uncaring, lazy, layabout husband and so-called father. He was convinced that she was doing all she could to make the marriage work, but I was just idle. He said that he hadn’t seen her for who she really was, and he was sorry that he’d doubted me for all of these months.
I always knew that he couldn’t see the real Katrina, but more importantly I’m glad that he can now see the real me.
