July 11th – Empty Purses and Bank Accounts

1999:  Woke up when I heard Dandell and Dessica playing.  We all had great fun playing until the mum’s finally decided to emerge – to discover the upstairs totally trashed.  We all played outside in the sandpit and on the push bikes. Mum and I left at midday and so ensued the usual routine, the only difference being that I awoke on the settee to the sound of the ice cream man – it just doesn’t get better than that!  Only problem was mummy’s purse was empty!  Luckily mummy avoided tears by finding some pennies in our big whiskey bottle collection pot, and I chose a screwball minus the bubble gum (only because mummy would let me have it).  Once I had it I wouldn’t let go, even holding on to it whilst doing a wee on my pot – which is fairly tricky when you’re two (and even more impressively I was dry).  I ate my ice cream and the tears began when I realised the lack of ice cream man tune meant that there was also a lack of any more ice cream!  Mum tried to fob me off with ice cream from the freezer but I wasn’t having any of it.  Mummy then tried this thing called diversion and next I knew I was playing with my toy tools.  Nanny and Pa came round and mummy and Pa continued cutting down the trees and shredding them – I got to stay up until half eight watching the industry but still didn’t sleep until gone nine.

2019: Ice cream is still a weakness and mum is never going to win encouraging me to go dairy free when I love it all so much.  My white cells are probably loaded with the MAP bacteria (See June 12th for more information on this and Crohns). One thing that isn’t loaded is my bank account and I today applied for a bank loan to try and clear some debts. The bank agent text to confirm that my application had been received and I should hear in the next 24 hours. I went to Mums and Zof arranged to meet me there after work for tea. She text to ask me what it was and I informed the bank agent that it was mustardy chicken salad. Hope that doesn’t effect the loan application!

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!
