Just to add.....regarding the whole, "Your interpretation of the situation compared to the kids".....
I'm not materialistic in any way shape or form, but i used to feel a little embarrassed when my kids wanted to bring any friends home to my house. I
have a small house, i feel l would love more for the kids, but i can't do anything about that at the moment. Many of their friends live in huge houses
(we're talking million pound properties easily).
However the other day, my daughter came home and said that her friends thought we had the best life and thought we were really rich.
why, because an ex-forces dad in a two bedroomed bungalow will hardly be well off.
They said it was because of the instruments we play together all the time, and the fun things we get to do.
This made me smile as the instruments are far from top quality, and our main activity since they were young has been packing up a picnic and going
over the forest for the day.
Funny how kids brains work....and heartbreaking sometimes when you see how much they remember when you don't have time for them..
