August 29th -Snacks and Weight gain

1999:  Snuggled up to mum until eight and then played until nine in my bedroom.  When we went downstairs Aunty Bim was there asleep on the settee.  Even better – there was a big bowl of left over sweeties in the middle of the floor.  Mmm.  I love breakfast.  This morning we drove to Burnham and spent the morning at the railway museum.  Poor mummy got into trouble as she had a dizzy moment and parked the car in the car park but in the way of the coach entrance!  We went for a ride on a train and saw buses, bikes, fire engines and tractors.   It was lovely and hot today and I played in the garden whilst mummy continued painting the fence with smelly brown stuff (nought to do with me this time).  Pa came round again and started building a play house for me and later Nanny came round too.  I got in the rabbit hutch and pretended to be a rabbit called snowy.  Nanny even bought me a carrot and a blanket to sleep on.  She’s far easier to entertain than my mum!  I had a lovely bubble bath – in the back garden, in my paddling pool, and then fell asleep on the settee.

2019: Back to work today. On a slow phased return which is good but still felt exhausted at the end of the day. Saw gastro consultant and he has agreed to me having immune infusions, just need to wait for a start date now! I’ve gone from 81 kilo before surgery last year to 91 kilo and have an overweight BMI for the first time ever in my life! Probably mirtazapine and sitting around eating snacks for the last month

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!
