It has been only three short days since my return from Adelaide and the funeral of my father so am am still trying to settle back down. I do think of him often and tears come, but I ama managing well. It is a weird feeling, though. I have had my dad in my life all my life until now.
Yesterday I went for some special 'me' time - driving down to Logan to look at Ikea. - I did have a couple of things I wanted to 'look' at but I had no deep determination to spend. Just looking. In the end I came back with a small pile of things - cost less than $24. It was a lovely outing and I look forward to returning. I did see some things I would love to have in my own home - if ever that dream becomes reality again.
Our marital home is on the market - so maybe I will get a few dollars, but not enough to buy/build a home of my own.
