1999: Up at six with my trousers only slightly “wet”. Quick change and into bed with mum for half an hour. Had milk, Marmite on toast and Sesame Street for breakfast. No play bus this morning – Telletubs were on instead. But I want Play bus. Had to have Calpol and inhalers today at Deedons due to my stinking cold. We drove a very long way home tonight, driving down several roads to look at all the lights, Father Christmas, Snowmen and of course – my friend Dennis/Sabre the fire engine. It was “great” – my latest catchphrase along with “it will be fun it will”. I was so tired when we got home that mummy had to feed me my tea. Nanny rang and I asked for Pa, I spoke to him and asked him to come round and a little while later he arrived. We had a play and then I waved him off and went to bed shortly afterwards. A while later mummy shouted up “what are you doing?” I shouted back “getting my books to read a story” – to Po, buzzing bee and Rachel if he’s here!
2019: Mum has been staying with Joy this week and messaged to say she is now on her way home with a homemade Christmas pressie for me. I guessed straight away – Joy makes the BEST banana cake in the world. At work today I got a new green Lanyard with sunflowers for people with invisible illness. Not sure its going to always work on the desk front but at least it’s a beacon for when people see me running to the disabled loo! My door license is all sorted now – just need to await delivery – but was able to work a door tonight in Norwich. Scrap with 6 lads inside which led to me being slogged in the face, deep breaths, no retaliation – just threw him out.
