I was a little apprehensive about him being here with me all day, every day, but it's working out incredibly well. Graham's naturally inclined to getting out of bed earlier than me. He wakes up and gets up to water the plants.
When I was in charge of watering, sometimes I'd forget and the poor things would go thirsty. No more! It's handy with Graham there too, because if he wants to come along whenever I'm doing some shopping, he's more than happy to drive.
We've been to the bank to talk about money, and talked to Centrelink too, and everything seems to be going along nicely. Today Graham and I went to the Barossa Valley to buy some food, and on the way home we stopped at a brewery to taste some of their beers.
I kept saying I didn't like beer, but I ended up trying every beer that Graham had (7 different ones). I was surprised at the differences in aroma and taste, and I ended up really getting into it. Once I was home again, I had to go and lie down for a power nap! It was a fun time today, just me and my man out in the lovely Barossa Valley!
I'm happy, Graham's happy, the dogs are happy, and even our son Jake is happy, well, I think he is, he's 18 and sometimes it's not easy to tell what he's feeling, happy, sad, bored, who knows?
