25th December – The Day is Here

1999:  Happy Christmas!  I didn’t wake up until 7.50, in mum’s bed where I had apparently been for most of the night.  We went into my room to see if Father Christmas had been.  He had and I had a great big sack full of presents.  Mummy went down to make tea and milk while I started on the first present, which turned out to be a game.  I asked mum to play too but she said we couldn’t play with everything as we had lots of pressies to unwrap.  We took the sack to her bed and carried on through the sack opening, pens, paints, sweets, illuminating stars, a home bake Tubbie cookies set etc.  I carried on eating and unwrapping until we got to the lorry and cars that Aunty Eesa had bought then we had to go downstairs and play.  I did carry on unwrapping though – a musical toothbrush, tools, a moneybox, a harmonica and of course more chocolate.  A lovely healthy balanced breakfast.  We went to Nanny and Pa’s, me dressed in my new handyman outfit, which I’d also unwrapped.  Uncle Terry arrived shortly afterwards and then Pa with Bomper and for the next few hours we opened lots and lots more presents.  Mummy got a computer from Uncle Terry and a bike from Nanny, Pa and Bomper and I got a snowsuit, a Harley Davidson bike jacket, and a bike seat for mums bike.  We all sat down for dinner, which was lovely, and then mummy and Terry nipped home to get my Teletubbies bike helmet.  When they got back mum put it on me and Pa went upstairs to get her new bike.  But it looked a bit smaller and it was all wrapped up again.  Oh wow a motorbike all of my very own!  I went for a ride all kitted out but the stabilizers aren’t very good so I can’t ride it on my own yet.  I probably would have worn the battery out anyway!  Later mummy and Pa put my seat on her bike and we went ‘round the block’ which was great fun and then we packed all our pressies in the car and went home.  I decided to cover myself in felt tip pen so I ended up in the bath and mummy ended up in a strop.  I was quite tired so mum put my new Winnie the Poo pyjamas and later when I went to bed  I looked up at mummy before I fell asleep and said, “Thank you mummy, for my bike”.  She smiled, gave me a big hug and I fell asleep

2019 – Got back to mums at 12.30 – I may be 22 but I still want to wake up here Christmas Morning. Woke up at 11 when Kiegan arrived. We opened presents and later Nana, Pa, Marks parents and Zof came round for Christmas dinner. We are going to see Les Miserable at Norwich in March and I have a voucher for Clay Pigeon shooting. Tonight we drank and munched on cheese board and left overs and Zof and I ended up staying the night. Was a lovely chilled family day ( although mum is hoping we can do Christmas next year or her present to everyone will be paying for us all to eat out!)

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!
