June 5th -Monster Drives

1999:  Had a bath with mum and I stayed in for about another half an hour!  Not surprisingly I didn’t want to go swimming today – I don’t think prune skin is that attractive – and chose to go to the park instead.  We walked over to the park, through the industrial estate and I spied a tractor and a combine harvester outside one of the factories.  We walked over to them to get a closer look and the kind man went to get his keys and let me sit in them both.  Is it Christmas?  It took us a whole hour to get to the park (usually a 15 minute walk). We got a lift home with mummy’s nail lady who we bumped into at the park. Mummy tried to get me to have an afternoon nap but I wasn’t having any of it.  Po has been my best friend today – I put her in my swing (from the back because that’s the safest) and I even strapped her in. Then she went in my car and then on my bike and we went to bed worn out from our exciting day,

2019:  Would love to work on a farm driving around or on site in a dumper truck. I did get a ride in a combine one summer, when the farmers in the field opposite to Nan and Pa’s where harvesting. Would also like to be a Firefighter. Anything that involves driving fun things really. I’m easy! So long as they have portaloos!

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!
