November 29th – Head and Chest and Hands and Feet

1999: I didn’t get up until 6.55 and I was soaked. Once sorted I got into bed with mum who gave me a big cuddle and then we went down for milk and tea in time for Playbus.  Playschool today, which was wicked as we got to put our hands and feet in lots of paint and make pictures.  I usually do this in the garden; I’ve never done it anywhere else before and certainly not indoors!    We had to go to Nanny’s on the way home to feed her cat as she is now away.  Which is progress, as last time they went away for five days and mum remembered to feed the cat when Nan got home and rang her to say puss was very hungry!  We had scampi chips and peas for tea, albeit a bit cold due to me pooing and weeing my pants and being diverted for a quick shower.  We rang Nanny and sang happy birthday and I went up to bed at seven.  Mum said I could have a story but I pointed out that I couldn’t open my cupboard, under my cabin bed, to choose a book as the mattress is still on the floor.  She moved it, I chose a book and then I practiced walking up and down the steps.  I can do it mum, it’s just far more fun to jump down.  After my story I had to call mum back up to tell her Po was trapped in the draw (she does get into mischief).  Mum rescued her and tucked us both in for the night.

2019: Had to leave work early today as Dom has been taken into hospital. Sustained a head injury at rugby on Sunday and has been poorly all week. 111 sent an ambulance. Turned out to be bronchitis triggered by his asthma. Mum said a similar  thing happened to me once – I got hit on the head with a seesaw and a couple of days later was really listless with a headache. Deedon rang mum who advised to get an ambulance (she was in Cambridge) but they discovered a temperature and took me to the GP who diagnosed tonsillitis. Seems a bump on the head can cause all manner of ills!

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!
