50 Day Question Challenge 2016 - Day 5

Image result for parent

5. Which parent are/were you closer to and why?

Were - as both parents have passed away.  In my younger years, I was closer to my mother; my older years,definitely my dad.  My mum could be pretty difficult - and I had to do more for her.  I loved her, but didn't like her much.  I got on really well with my dad, even though we were estranged for a few years. We were really quite close in the latter part of his life and quite similar in many way, especially humour and view on the world.  I do have tender memories of my mother, but my father is the one I hold in stronger regard.
