October 30th – Chocolate Money

1999: Up at half five but persuaded back to bed with mum for an hour and then we got up and went downstairs.  Mummy fell asleep on the settee until eight which was great as I got to trash the lounge.  Mum awoke to find I had also helped myself to whole cup of neat orange squash.  We went swimming and ate in the pool cafe afterwards, but I decided to eat most of mine in the car.  Unfortunately my food hit the floor before we reached the car.  We went to Asda to look for Nanny who does in store demonstrating and I spied her easily and I tasted her chocolates.  What a great day to come to Asda! Mum didn’t think so though – was it the chocolate or my tiredness that caused me to knock everything off the shelves and rails?  Who knows, but either way I had fun. 

2019: Off today and booked my CITB for next Tuesday so I can earn extra money on site as ours just seems to disappear. Mum is worried about me over doing it and advising that we will always spend more than we earn. I told her that’s rich coming from her. I’ve seen her do a day shift into a night shift and back into a day many times before!

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!
