I feel the same. I live 3 hours away from my mum but I always ring her on a Sunday afternoon- she never rings me. I find it such a struggle to talk to her as there is little to no conversation. She doesn’t go out anyway in the week and only sees the cleaner and the gardener. I end up telling her what my husband and I and the kids have been doing but I get nothing back. She writes everything I say down so that she doesn’t forget but it makes for an incredibly painful phone conversation.
