I’ll admit it, and so will she, there definitely seemed to be a larger dose of sisterly hate when we were young! We were not very nice to each other – having said that, often we did play well together. We probably got over the hate thing about the time I left home!
Anyway, moving on some thirty years, we Skype each other at least once a week (she lives in Nelson), and we haven’t hit each other, or even exchanged cross words (much), since we stopped living together!
Now I’m a grown-up, I love my little sister.
