It is every parent’s fantasy to have their unemployed, unmarried, middle-aged child living with them and my mum is now lucky enough to be living that very dream.
Today, ten days after I arrived back in Western Australia, mum and I finally made it home to Lake Clifton. I’ve unpacked my suitcases and moved into the spare room with the jig-saw puzzles, games and soft toys of my childhood. But there is still plenty of room left, for when the bulk of my clothes arrive in August. For now, I’m happy with a pair of tracky-dacks, QANTAS pjs and some running gear! I also picked up some socks at Target last week so my feet are snuggly warm too.
Mum has acclimatised to having me around surprising quickly. Not long after we got home, she settled down in to her chair. Almost immediately she had me running around to collect items for her so she didn’t have to get up again. I was unpacking my cases in my room when I discovered that she had found her bell and wasn’t afraid to use it.
We’ll see how long it is before she loses it!
You’re awesome Merilyn!
Thanks Simone. And render that it takes one to know one! 🙂
