What sort of relationship did you have with your parents?

I was much ... very close to my mum. She was always there ... which was good and she seemed more gentle. 'Cause my dad was more autocratic and ... would just say 'No' or 'Yes' and wouldn't necessarily explain the reasons whereas Mum would explain ... everything, and she was always, like the one time, there was one time when she went off on a Girl Guide trip to Japan. And that was really strange, to wake up and she wasn't there, and to go to bed and she wasn't there.
