1999: I awoke in the early hours to find mummy asleep on the bathroom floor! It frightened me a bit and I started to cry which woke her up. She took me to her bed but I didn’t like that much either because Al was there and snoring very loudly, so mum and I ended up in my bed! Al made me a bacon sandwich for breakfast. When mummy got up we went to see Nanny and then mum went to see Bomper. We had egg and bacon for lunch and when mummy came to collect me she had to wait while Pa and I made some bread. Once home I played in the garden and got very very muddy and ended up in the bath before tea.
2019: Used to love baking with Pa. He had a bread maker and I used to sit on the kitchen side watching the mixture go round and round. Although I love cooking, I don’t really do much baking – unless you can count packet cake mix?! Belatedly watched the England v Australia highlights – Watts interception was insane as was the grubber kick. Going to miss England v All Blacks on Saturday as have put down to work overtime. Mum’s worried I’m going to tire myself out but my thinking is I’m tired either way, so might as well get paid for it
