The rain is here, making a gentle sound on the roof and the house is quiet and I have a nice book. Just what I needed, it turns out.

The biggest thing I miss, being a partnered parent, is quiet time to read a book for fun.

@daedalus I presume from this you mean you are a single parent? It’s fucking hard enough being one of two parents. My mum was a single full-time working parent and JFC I look back on my childhood in sheer amazement at her resilience.


@haruki_zaemon No, I have a partner. Being a single parent would be much harder.
