1999: Mum cooked a fry up this morning and it was yummy. Wasn’t too keen on the mushrooms though but mum seemed rather pleased about this. I did some drawing at my table and drew a picture for daddy and Grandma picked me up at half ten to go and see him. Aunty Wendy was round too so I spent all day playing with Cousin Harry. I arrived home at 5.40p.m. – sound asleep. Mum had packed my pyjamas this week so I went straight to bed (apparently). Daddy’s home from Kent now so I’ll see him again in two weeks’ time.
2019: Text mum before work to wish her a good day. Apparently the weather is cold, they have no warm clothes, there were riots in Porto last night between police and England fans, Kiegan got hit with a truncheon when he was just walking up to the metro station and I’m glad to say Mum has now decided not to go to the game tonight – which is the whole reason for going to Portugal.
