August 20th – A More Motivated Day

1999:  Mummy and I made up last night before I went to sleep so we were okay this morning. Mum’s repaired the books as best she can and the water appears to have stopped pouring through the ceiling.  Edons today and I arrived dry as felt mum had enough stress yesterday.  Mum’s bought some ‘fish bits’ for the bathroom – soap dish, toilet roll holder etc. which I really like.  After my bath Pa arrived (he’s the laundry person today).  I showed him the newly painted bathroom.  He said “oh” long pause “that’s different”.  Now that’s diplomatic!  It did grow on him though.  I waved him off after ‘twinkle, twinkle’ and ‘half a pound of tuppeny’ and stories from mum to Pa of water, ceiling, book and tears. 

2019: More motivated today; took  Zof’s brother and sister  to Cromer for a walk around the beach, picnic and a bit of rugby fun.

Tonight I signed a petition to end single crewing of police officers and roll out tasers to all officers. So far 95,7521 have signed this via This used to be my wannabe job but that D grade Maths just does not help. That’s why I changed to army engineer but Crohn’s put paid to that as I think it would the fire brigade. So I’m focussing on repatriation and mortuary work now, but there is nothing advertised locally at the moment but Ill keep looking

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!
