Friday 29th September – Daddy!

There’s no Thursday on purpose since I didn’t experience any of it. At the end of my 13 hour flight to Taipei, it was Friday morning. I’d managed to get a decent amount of sleep making the flight go relatively quickly and the dinner and breakfast they served up was enough to tide me over…

Wednesday 27th September – Goodbye America

Shit scared. They’re the words that entered my head when I woke before my alarm. How was I going to be without Dan for months on end? When he woke, after I said good morning, I just said, “shit.” He knew exactly what I meant. My alarm went off and we didn’t muck around, having…

Tuesday 26th September – Near Death Experience

I was the snoozy one this morning despite the fact that Dan had been up until past midnight watching a TV series with me asleep on his torso. The wine from last night had got me tipsy and it made me want to sleep in a little. With no hunger pains from my tummy there…

Monday 25th September – Aussie Dinner

The only thing on the agenda today was cooking. Peter had cleared the kitchen for us, we were taking over his territory for the day. I had a vague plan in my head of what had to happen and a very dedicated Su chef who was willing to follow my every word. After our usual…

Sunday 24th September – Camelback Mountain

Nothing like the sleep in of yesterday, but we didn’t exactly spring into action either… We enjoyed our breakfast like we usually do, cooking up some eggs and bacon with a smoothie to wash it all down. We heard from Peter that Debbie had taken herself to the doctor to get her sickness sorted. When…

Saturday 23rd September – Sunny (and Mild) Phoenix

I woke up early and ready to get out of bed. The few hours before dawn are always coldest and my toes were tingling. I left Dan snoozing and emerged from the Cabana. Cleo joined me and I wasn’t surprised to find there was frost covering the ground. After I’d relieved myself, I fancied a…

Friday 22nd September – No Arms, No Legs

Suuuuper lazy morning. There were clouds in the sky and even a couple of rain drops as I sat out blogging. Dan was snoozing per usual having had a bad sleep, so me and Cleo had risen for the morning ritual. I made the fire anew and sat by it with my laptop while Cleo…

Thursday 21st September – A Tour of My Sedona

We were up early thanks to an alarm we set at 7:30am since Dan had an online class he had to attend at 9am. We had plenty of time to wake up to the smell of petrol and hit the road. Thanks to such a big dinner last night, neither of us were hungry for…

Wednesday 20th September – Scam of the Century

Another morning of Dan snoozing and me building a morning fire. It was just too tempting to pile a few bits onto the warm ashes, blow on it a bit and have instant warmth. When Dan joined me and Cleo outside, we stood by the fire and nibbled on a small amount of cereal for…

Tuesday 19th September – Man Bun and a Climber, Lucky Me!

We’d survived the cold night, all three of us having slept soundly. Surprise, surprise, we didn’t have anywhere to be in a hurry so we had ourselves a slow morning. Dan was determined to do a Hawaiian-ish breakfast so got to cooking while I sat in bed watching. He steamed some rice, then fried up…
