It was our Lunar New Year yesterday. Thus as tradition we visit my in laws.

I know we are divorcing but I am still attending his family’s stuff. It’s got nothing to do with him. I get along well with his siblings.

It was held at his sister’s. Everyone was there. We caught up on the news.

They were all shocked that I’ve bought. I think they were hoping that we’d rekindled our love with that trip.

After the shock came the sadness. They said to me we’ve been sisters for so long there’s no reason to change that.

So if I have a party or dinner you’ll have to come.

I was touched. I think the hard part about divorce is the isolation.

It’s weird. The other night at my friend’s her husband looked like he was going to give me a hug. Usually I would accept it.

That night I held back as I’m a soon to be single mum now. I have to watch myself.
