1999: Awoke in the middle of the night, mum came to get me as I was at the top of the stairs and she was asleep downstairs, as was Bim. Mum took me back to my own bed at 5 though, with complaints of me being wriggly and restless. Up again at 7 but forgot that mum was downstairs and wandered around upstairs shouting ‘Mum, Mum, Mum’. It made me jump and then laugh when mum came up the stairs behind me. She took me downstairs where I played very noisily (well is there any other way to play?) I don’t think mum and Bim were too impressed, they just carried on lying there. Adults – they can be so boring at times! Mum and I didn’t get dressed until mid-day, following several bouts of upset stomachs. We went for a walk over the town, I pushed my buggy all the way, bought our usual bacon roll and I sat in the buggy to eat it. We had a quick whiz round the town and spied a blue carpet with Teddy Bears on, so we went in and bought it – as you do – no respect for money.
2019: Now I know where I get my spending from. Although mum says that when she used to tell me she didn’t have any money I used to just tell her to “go to the hole in the wall then”. Mum has now transferred my part returned flight money and I have put it into our joint savings account. Went back to Lowestoft today to get valentines cakes I had ordered for Zof and got everything ready for tomorrow. #money #toddlers #adults #childhood #carpets adulthood #girlfriend
