.... the mouse has to look after herself.
Wayne flew out early this morning for two weeks in Australia.
It's funny how at times like this, the roles you've both taken in a relationship become more obvious.
For years before Wayne and I met, I was single and very independent. I prided myself on being self-sufficient.
Now, as Wayne was preparing to leave, he worried that I wouldn't feed myself properly, and like a good caring wife, he cooked up a number of meals for me to put in the freezer. I was concerned about him taking his first international flight on his own and ran him through the change of terminals and things to do in Singapore airport. I went and bought his train ticket to the airport for him and checked that he'd packed everything he needed. I got teary saying goodbye at the station.
These things, we could both do all on our own, but it is nice to know that someone cares enough to worry.
