December 29th – Food to Come Home For

1999:  Up at seven but let mummy stay in bed until 8.30.  Was dry and took myself to the toilet.  Was nagged to put the toilet seat down and shut the door though.  Honestly I wish she’d never met Mr. & Mrs. Feng Shui.  It was very frosty this morning and mummy said, “look Jack, all the grass is covered in Jack Frost”.  Oh no.  She’s flipped again.  I looked straight at her and said, “no, I’m not frosty” (and there’s no way I’m laying out on that grass either).  Mummy didn’t have to go to work until 11.00 so we went to Nanny’s at ten and we waved her off half an hour later.  I’ve had a busy day with nanny, Pa and Bomper – shopping and helping around the house.  Pa has taught me to play Jenga and I demonstrated my new found skill to mummy when she came home.  I also told her the name of the road we live in and the house number.  Clever old Pa. 

2019:  Zof has gone to visit her uncle in hospital today so a day alone catching up on sleep and chilling. Looking back on FB and seeing that two years ago I’d just been discharged from hospital following sepsis and having to face nightly drip  infusions of antifungals. My coming home treat? Dominos of course!

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!
