Hi Kas, Sounds like you're handling the situation well. Interesting how putting someone else's needs first can actually promote your needs as well. Some of us, maybe especially men, really have difficulty discussing our feelings. Not only by habit or training, but some actually have difficulty even when they want to do so, to find words to communicate feelings. So best to make it very clear you appreciate how hard this situation must be for him, and are glad to talk about this with him when he wishes to do so.
SOunds like a good Festive Season, too. I really prefer Pretoria, for instance, during the period when most of the annoying folks have rushed off to bother the unfortunate folks in Durban and Cape Town - the city here is so much quieter and more peaceful.
