1999; Weather not so hot today so I was back in trousers. After Edons I played in the garden and watered the plants. I had crisps, strawberries and melon for tea (hardly cordon bleu but I enjoyed it). I watched mum peel off the melon skin with her knife and then copied her with my own plastic one but it looked much easier than it was. Mum and I played football. I’m getting quite good at scoring goals but mummy has to play goal scoring too, to my “ready, steady, go”. I had such fun that I refused to come in for a bath and after many hysterics and tantrums; I ended up in bed at 6.30. What ever happened to free expression? We did have a cuddle and a story though. We had ‘Peepo’ for the first time in a couple of weeks and I knew most of the words. I wasn’t to be defeated though and stayed awake until 8.45, following a bottom shower at eight due to the poo factor.
2019: Continuing on the bum theme – mum rang hospital today and they cannot see an appointment with IBD nurse and they are not sure what’s happening with my colonoscopy re-schedule or the barium I was supposed to have after my early year check up. On the flip side, she has managed to get me an appointment with the IBD nurse on Thursday – Result!
