April 29th – Toddler Tantrums

1999:  Into mums at six.  It was actually still dark, so I went back to sleep for 15 whole minutes.  I wasn’t fooled for long though, I soon realised it was the new curtains making it dark and that it was actually light outside, so I got up.  Back to Edon’s today and toddler group and I also saw nan and Bomper. Tonight mum started digging up the garden. The chance was not to be missed – permission to dig in the garden, so I picked up my spade too.  After a bath I demanded my drink.   Mum told me she was making it, but I WANT IT NOW.  To show I meant business I whacked the washing machine with my toy car.  Mum said once more and I would go to bed – so I gave it my best shot.  BED.  I wanted to stay downstairs.  Mum told me I would have to say sorry to the washing machine, which I did – is she daft it’s an object (with feelings apparently).  Then I took myself off to bed.  What’s so funny mum?  Did I miss something?  Oh well, I was tired anyway

2019:  The long awaited day is here. Finally started at Aviva. First day went well and I cannot begin to tell you what an amazing relief it was not to be pounding my body on a building site and working a 10 hour day. Id like to say mum has made all my 1999 diary up but I still spit my dummy out now

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!
