March 21st – Picnics and Homemade Grub

1999:  Got up lots last night as could not settle.  Eventually went to bed at 10.30 with mum.  Woke at 5 and said ‘Up’ ‘dink’.  Mum said ‘you must be joking’ and back to sleep we went until 7.30.  I think mum was expecting a lie in. Think again.  I am covered all over with a rash.  Doctors tomorrow.  Helped mum wash the kitchen floor which is a bit of a wet job if you ask me.  What do you mean ring the cloth out? It’s not a bell!  Went to Asda shopping.  At the check out the open packets going through the scanner were bananas, lollies, chicken, cherry tomatoes and cheese biscuits.  Mum says that perhaps we should go to somewhere more scenic next time we decide to have a picnic.  I took all the magnetic letters off the fridge in a frenzy this afternoon – mum ignored me.  This temper thing doesn’t always seem to work.  Anyway I soon got her attention when I held up the ’M’ and said ’Mum, Mum, Mum,’ She was impressed. On the way to bed tonight I tripped over the stair gate. Mum said “where are you going?”  I looked straight at her and said “bed”. For some reason she found this very funny.

2019: Really hard days graft today. Covered in cuts and bruises. Pocket dialled mum. Text to tell her “pocket rang you” Cant believe she actually rang me and asked who pocket was! And the worlds ditziest mum award goes to ……. Went over to see her tonight though and wolfed down home made, unburnt, gluten and lactose free lasagne which was actually pretty good.

I may do stupid things and make light of them but deep down there’s a reason and I love exploration, even if I cannot fully understand the outcome!
