1999: I think it must be mum’s funny time of month again, she’s not been herself the past day or two, and today was no better. Oh joy! Another week of impatience, shouting and not being able to do anything right. Mum had a shower whilst I drank my milk in her bed and when she came back in for cuddles realised that me and the bed were soaked for the second morning running. We were a bit behind today and a bit rushed to get out the door. I thought it was great fun to avoid the shoes and coat, but mum didn’t hold out too well with that game. We got to Edon’s just as they were about to leave for school, so I went straight in the buggy. When mummy went I screamed and sobbed, I think I saw a tear in mummy’s eye as she walked away. We went to the doctors tonight as I keep saying ‘I’m ‘ot’ and have a gooey nose and eyes. Now got nasal drops and antibiotics. We made dinner together, we had good fun, and I pricked the sausages and then pretended to peel a potato with my plastic knife and then threw it around the kitchen.
2019: Over to Zof’s tonight after work as going to set up joint account tomorrow and speak to estate agents about rental property. How things change. This time last year I was recovering from a fungal infection in my blood and sepsis. I planned to go away for a year to Australia, had my visa and my flights booked for May. Crohns had other ideas as I was rushed in to hospital a week before my flight and had to stay here to have surgery in July. And then I met Zof. We cannot travel currently as still not medically fit but there’s always time.
