April 5th – Mischievous Days

1999: Up at 7.00, no prizes for guessing where mum was.  Whilst she was asleep I pooed my nappy and decided to take it off, because that’s what she usually does.  Mum awoke to find marks all over my bed, my carpet and her bed.  Oops!  I had to have a bath and get clean and mum had loads of washing to do. We went to Asda and bought two packed lunches and set off for Danbury lakes.  We walked around and then put a rug on the grass to eat, but we both ended up with wet bums, as the grass was so wet that it soaked through the rug.  We fed the ducks but they weren’t interested so the fish ate the bread instead.  We played ball, I threw it backward over my head, and it rolled down the slope and now the ducks are playing with it!  We went for another walk and I climbed some trees.  Mum got a bit cross though because I kept throwing stones, and she got even crosser when one hit a young boy on the head. Oh dear.  Mum was very apologetic and luckily his mummy was very understanding and forgiving.  Not so with my mum though – we had to go home. 

2019: Bit of a crappy day (literally). Back and shoulder hurting from work. Popped round to mums and ran straight in to the loo. Crohn’s has really flared – suggestions from mum to drink plenty of alcohol, avoid fried and spiced food and alcohol. Good luck with that one – we’ve got a house warming party tomorrow night. Picked up my car from mums after taping the wing mirror back on (I knocked it off after three days of having it – not happy – cant afford to get I fixed so just keep strapping it up)

April 4th – Eggs, Sausages and Crohn’s

1999: – Easter Sunday – More eggs!  Mum wanted to lie in (again), so she put my potty out, the telly on, made everywhere safe and left me to get on with it – which I did with a vengeance.  I totally trashed the place; it was great fun, especially with no one around to keep saying that horrible ‘no’ word.  When mum eventually got up we went into the garden, I played and Mum was weeding and now the beds look really bare – just mud everywhere.  Later I watched mum trying to dig up an old azalea in the front garden, which was quite funny.  She put the spade under the plant and was sitting on the handle.  It took forever to budge, but eventually she won (she always does).  We had a bath and put shorts and T-shirt on as it had gotten really hot.  We went round to see Nan and Pa and by the time we got there the sun had gone in and mum had to go back home and get some warmer clothes

2019:  Wish it had cooled today as I back to work in the heat. I like being outside but looking forward to starting at Aviva as office work wont take such a toll on my body. Had a slightly dodgy sausage tonight which bought on D&V and a Crohn’s flare. Bloomin ulcers. Not good
