1999: Mum came to get me at midnight as I was crying and took me into her bed. It wasn’t the best of nights but we got through it. The end result was – we overslept. I was a bit reluctant to let mum go today even with Edons temptation of toddler club this morning – but go she did, with excuses that she was going to be late for that work thing again. What the hell is that anyway? It must be something that’s more fun than me, she goes there so often that I guess it must be. After tea tonight mum finished off my hair and it now looks neat.
2019: Well I attempted to leave for work at 7am only to find my car stuck in the mud which I could swear was grass when I parked it on the garden last night. This is my new way of getting mum up – she was trying to help but nothing would shift it. I’d dropped the work van off elsewhere yesterday so couldn’t get into work,. When I rang they advised they were having a reshuffle and I could take the week of. Great today but not Friday week when I don’t get any pay
