Thanks, rory. More good news - Carob got the job! So, returning after this holiday to both boys in the same city... What a treat. My adventures continue. Having a good time. Had a frustrating conversation yesterday trying to explain to my travelling companion how my relationships work. She kept saying "I just can't get my head around it."
I was so happy to hear the news about C's job, and she wasn't really understanding how this was a good thing.
Ah well, different strokes. I'm blissful. Hitting the road again soon.
