I've seen my mum 3 times in 7.5 years.
Steve will see his family more than that amount in less than a week.
He saw his family yesterday, he'll see his sister tomorrow, his dad on Friday and his whole family again on Saturday.
I haven't seen my mum since the Summer of 2010 but Steve sees his dad twice a week, his sister once a week and his mum every 6 weeks, but I haven't seen my mum since early July 2010!
When I very first moved to Gloucester, it was on the understanding that we went over to see my family regularly.
It lasted less than a year.
Steve wouldn't put up with it, so why should I?!
