Our routine has well and truly gone out the window. Things we didn't need to think about before have suddenly become important to consider.... everything from choosing what to cook for dinner (using our very basic cooking facilities), to carting a bag of rubbish with us to work or to visit someone (we only have an industrial skip for rubbish and don't want to put food in it), to remembering to take our water container to fill when I go to work (we've bought new water tanks but Mick hasn't had a chance to set them up - and it's pouring rain today!). Many things will get easier once there is time to set things up better but for now we have to persevere.
It's been the most exhausting month of our lives and we're both so tired. They had the office so over-warm today that I was worried I'd fall asleep! Mick managed to pick up a cold on the plane when he went to NZ so he's not feeling the best.
We both have our birthdays in June and instead of buying each other a present we usually have a weekend away instead. This weekend has been booked since before Christmas and as it's turned out the timing couldn't be better. It's just what we need - a weekend of rest at the beach.
