As I predicted I did know more about Namibia and Botswana than our speaker! A great deal more! She let herself down rather – especially on her wildlife which she got very mixed up over.
But I didn’t do myself any favours going as I opened up rather too many wounds! I thought I’d be OK – but all I did was find myself remembering the incredibly happy times we had together on the numerous holidays we spent in those two countries. And I don’t care what Alex says now he was happy then – really happy.
I have come home wondering “What happened to the Alex I knew then” because he is not that person now. It really is as if an alien has invaded his mind and his persona. The then person was confident and in charge of himself and a caring, loving and special human being. He isn’t that now. I just wonder what triggered all this. Perhaps ‘Midlife Crisis’ really is what’s happened.
Sad. So sad.
