Sunday night we had a lovely time with Matt. He had brought home a card, rose and small bag of chocolates for Mothers’ Day. Of course, this was organised by his staff, but I appreciated that it was what he wanted as well. He was juggling the little white gift bag on his lap, with help from Haidar. He was cheerful and ate well during the visit. When Haidar picked him up he introduced us to Gul, his wife, who is training to be a wheelchair taxi driver.
On Monday I worked at the East Vic Park house and quite enjoyed the day, taking one client out for her 1:1 and shopping and being kind to the boys.
I negotiated an earlier finish at 1.30 p.m. with the staff member when she came on at 1.00 p.m.
I went and had a photo for the client printed at Officeworks on the way home. 10 cents.
At home had a rest and we packed up to go back to the caravan at Mt Helena. We enjoyed drinks and nibbles on the verandah. We had a frozen meal that just needed some vegetables to make a meal, followed by fruit and chocolate. We haven’t tried the TV, just watched a DVD from the library.
This morning (Tuesday) we got up late and had a leisurely breakfast. We went to Mundaring and had a walk along a trail to the Mundaring Weir. Not that we walked that far, but it was a first go in a while of going out for a walk. We are enjoying fine weather at the moment, quite cold up here in Mt Helena, but with warmish days in the early 20’s. After lunch at an open air cafe we drove to Mundaring Weir, had a rest in the car, then walked down to the lookout. Walking back up was quite difficult for both of us, perhaps we are just unfit.
Then we went to call on Mum. A surprise for her, but it was lovely to see her happy in her new home. We asked permission to leave the caravan at her old place for a couple of weeks in case we have a chance to spend a couple of night here again. She said that of course it was OK. I will see her tomorrow and have offered to take her shopping if she wants to go out. Stephen plans to catch the bus down to Midland and catch the train, heading home independently.
