This is just me letting off steam, no sympathy expected.
It just struck me today, how isolated I am from my immediate family. DS, DiL and DGD live abroad, 1000s of miles away (though we communicate regularly and visit each other whenever we can); DB and his family about 100 miles away and all have busy lives, very little free time for visits or even just chatting; DS and her family live in Kent (we're in Yorkshire) and as DS has a job and doesn't drive, and train fares being as they are, has visited us up here less than half a dozen times in 30 odd years. When we visit her, which we have done several times, we have to stay in a hotel as she lives in a tiny flat (those ridiculous southern property prices!).
Is this other people's experience or are we just a weird family?
As I said, not looking for answers or sympathy, but just wondering about others' family experiences.
