Promises to self: When my mother goes to respite care, I will...
1. Sleep for 8 wonderful uninterrupted hours
2. Tackle the garden without having to change in and out of wellingtons every other minute
3. Have a girls' night out with my friends
4. Have lunch with my more sober friends
5. Go to a movie
6. Cook and eat Indian food every day without "people" fainting at the smell
7. Deep clean my mother's rooms while she's not there to get twitchy about it
8. Take my CV to three employment agencies for part-time work
9. Rejoin the Friday night regulars at our local pub
10. Hope that by the end of the week I'll be missing my mum.
