1999 – Up at 7.45 which I thought was pretty reasonable but mummy was still dopey. Mum had a bath and when she got out I pointed down below and asked, “What’s that?” Mum said it was hair and I asked her if it had fallen off her head. What have I said funny now? We pottered around and then went out at 11 to see Aunty Rita and give her her Christmas present, which Father Christmas had obviously left at ours. I fell asleep on the way home and awoke in my bed some hours later – soaked.
2019: Tired today but buzzing for 2020 and all it will hopefully bring if all our plans come off. Last day of office work until the New Year. Am off on 2nd for next lot of infusions. Mum has finally managed to sort some holiday insurance for us through Purple Parking at £101 which wasn’t too bad considering some quotes for my Crohn’s. Have sent her my passport details for check in ….. not long now. Hopefully start the year as we mean to go on – positive, happy and making memories.
