3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Because I am a carer, the dynamic is different from the norm. Missus may have ideas about what she wants, but she counts on me to initiate, plan and execute everything. It is of course pointless to resent this and better to embrace the role full-on.
It's not without its rewards. I get unprecedented freedom for a husband, and I am worshipped and adored, which I unashamedly enjoy. Few people will be so fortunate as to be on the receiving end of such blind devotion. I like to think I deal with this responsibly. I certainly do not abuse it and take pleasure in keeping her happy. She is very well cared for.
I have not planned out the fortnight - we'll take opportunities to be spontaneous and I will count on my intuition to guide us through each day.
