November 14th – Winter Sun Beds

1999: Up at six but played nicely in my room until half seven, when I woke mum by saying, “mum what’s that?”  She came to and eventually realised it was someone knocking on the door.  Lucky I woke her because it was my new mattress! We emptied my room and started to complete the construction of the rest of my bed.  Well mummy built it and I helped her by saying, “don’t worry mummy” when she looked confused.  At 10.30 she gave up and decided we needed to go and collect Pa’s electric screwdriver and grab a cuppa once there.  Had a little sleep this afternoon in my new bed, which remarkably looks like a bed and didn’t collapse.  When I went to bed tonight mum put my old mattress on the floor next to my new cabin bed in case I fall out in the night.  I think this is great as it means I can just jump out rather than use the steps.

2019:  Hmmm  Text from mum tonight asking if I want to go to Cape Verde with her in December as early Christmas Pressie (even though she had vowed £50 a head this year!|) Either Mark has peed her off or she just needs some winter sun. Anyway, I cant get any time off in December but maybe in January ……

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!
