October 20th – The Lions Lair

1999:  Edons first thing, then off to Nan’s – I was ready and waiting for her when she arrived.  I saw Pa, Nanny, Bomper and Uncle Telly – who painted a tiger on my face with Nan’s make up and printed me a picture from the Lion King from Pa’s computer.  We’d already had tea when mum came home and mum and I went up to the bathroom to “surprise” everyone with the new clean me.  Uncle Telly gave me £5 for some sweeties and Nanny has collected lots of ‘coloured bits’ for my sponsored yoghurt pot (and sponsored me too!)  Once back home I went to bed but told mummy she had “forgotten something” – a “wet wipe in my bed”.  She did laugh and was very impressed with my speech, but didn’t have a clue why I was requesting this!

2019: Not a good day. Completely exhausted when I got in from work. I just didn’t have the energy to cook anything and so asked Zof to do so. This ended up in a dispute and so I got some space and went to mums for a bit where I polished off the rest of the beef hotpot they had made for dinner. I had a chat with mum when she advised that cooking is only a life skill once you have learnt to do it. Just because I have always cooked and seem to have a natural flare, not everyone does. Point made, I headed back home.

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!
