1999: Didn’t wake up until 7.15 this morning, when I found my milk ready and waiting for me. Mum came in and we had a big hug. My nappy was only slightly damp and mum was very pleased, and so was I. When we got to Edons her two were having a lie in and were still in bed. Personally I can’t ever see me doing that, even if it is school holidays – I might miss something! Josh arrived just after me, and mum left to my screams and tears. I was pleased to see mum at 5.00 and couldn’t wait to get out to the car, but when I did I ran back twice to give Edon a big kiss. It’s so confusing this tooing and froing I just don’t know which grass is greener really! I didn’t eat much tea, even though it was one of my favourites – tagliatelle and garlic bread. I mostly licked the garlic butter off the bread. Nice treat for Edon tomorrow.
2019: Saturday lie in – they did come eventually but not as much as m teenage years when mum used to threaten me with a cold flannel at 1pm! Chilling and recovery day and realising that having a partner when you have a chronic illness is tough but being accepted for who you are is what means the most.
