1999: Had lemon curd sandwiches for my lunch. Mum thinks this is revolting enough but when Nan told her I’d added cheese to the equation she felt sick. Shows how much she knows – it was very nice “actually”. Pa has built my steps for my playhouse which I used to climb up and down his shed today. I had my bath at Nanny’s and went to sleep in mum’s bed again.
2019: A year ago today found me and Zof at the top of Snowden (which inspired my run up it for charity this year). On this occasion I lay roses in memory of Ibish Peri, who had taken his own life a few days before, leaving many people in Norwich astounded and saddened. Suicide is the leading cause of death in men under the age of 45 in the UK. We all need to look out for each other, ask the right questions, encourage people to get support, be there and just listen but, more importantly, we all need to learn to reach out. There is ALWAYS SOMEONE there for you and your feelings will change and it will not be like this forever.
