My girlfriend has hurt her back and can’t bend or anything so I’m looking after her. Made her dinner and fussed over her all evening. Just put her socks and shoes on for her too. The nurse within me is pretty happy to be back fussing over someone and as much as she insists she’s fine, I know she’s enjoying being taken care of.
This morning I rolled over and shaped my body to fit yours. I let the tip of my nose brush the nape of your neck and then turned my head to trace my lips across your freckled shoulder. I felt you sigh and, still asleep and almost as though it were instinct, your body shifted slightly to melt into mine.
There have only been 43 Americans who have taken the presidential oath, not 44 as Obama stated in his speech after being elected. Grover Cleveland held the position twice, once as the 22nd President of the United States and once as the 24th, with a four year break in between.
Home from my weekend trip to the coast with my girlfriend. It was so therapeutic to have our own space for a few days, to make dinner together, fall asleep next to each other, get ready together in the morning. It was back to reality once we got back to Melbourne, but for three incredible days we had our own little piece of paradise.
Have spent the past two days house sitting with my girlfriend; sleeping in, cooking, relaxing and drinking red wine. Tomorrow we’re driving down to Waratah Bay for a weekend at the beach together.
I have never been this content, happy and in love.
