1999: Happy but croaky this morning – and so is mum (well the latter anyway!). Calpol and milk all round then! Aunty Eesa came round with Dandell and Dessica and we all piled in her camper van and headed for the Farm and a teddy bears picnic. We saw the animals, fed the hens crisps (they didn’t seem to keen but we had fun throwing them – the crisps that is). We went on the roundabout, bouncy castle, pony rides, playground, went to the craft tent and had ice-cream and ice lollies and lots of fun. When we got home we played in the garden. Mummy got the paints out and we painted pictures ……and feet……and arms……and legs………and faces! Later, Eesa and Dandell were in the paddling pool, I was washing my car with the hose when suddenly mummy had grabbed at the hose and aunty Eesa was throwing buckets of water at mummy. There was a massive water fight and mummy lost badly – especially as I was still holding the hose!
2019: Life’s no picnic today; just one of those days with lots unhappy work phone calls – and then I get one from mum saying she has a letter for me – chasing up one of my parking fines! Marks paid it for now …. until pay day .. role on next week!
