May 17th – Bumps in the Night

1999: Mum and I awoke to a bang at 3 a.m.  Mum came running in to my room but there was no panic, it was just my moonbeams projector falling on the floor.  I was upset though, and told mum I was wet.  She was very nice (considering the hour) and made me clean and dry and I went back to bed with her.  Monday morning routine again but I didn’t want to go to Edons and cried when mum left.  She was soon back again though and I gave her a big hug.  Then I didn’t want to go and ran upstairs to find one of Edons make up brushes and started painting with it – only pretend mind, I’m not that daft!  Mum eventually got me in the car and we set off for home.  I played in the garden, but it was very windy. Nan came round and  we decided to feed the birds, but I kept eating the bread for them so eventually mum found me some fresh and I liked it so much, I didn’t want my tea. 

2019: Friday at last. Made a naughty tea last night to give us lots of calories and fight for work today. At least I get to drive my lovely car. Excited to see the Golf GTI TCR is out. But I need to stick with mine for another 2 1/2 years (complete with dent as still no money to get it repaired and wing mirror still held on with tape!)

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!
