50 Day Meme Challenge 2015 - Day 36

36. How has your birth order/characteristics of siblings affected you?
I was the eldest by 4.5 years.  I think as the eldest, you are made to carry the can a lot.  My sister was definitely my mother's favourite, but we both had difficult relationships with her for different reasons.  Dad also had a fractious relationship with his daughters, but he did blame himself for that.  Dad and I got on really well in the last ten years of his life.

My sister and I squabbled as kids, but as adults we get on pretty well - as close as sisters can be, but give each other space.  We are very alike in a lot of way, but poles apart in others.  I love her dearly and wouldn't have it any other way.
