Minnie is coming around this afternoon (the laundry is closed for repairs to the hot water system) and Barbara is vaguely conscious of the fact that she will be pleased if she arrives and sees her fo...lding the firelighters properly. The desire to please your parents never quite seems to go away, not even once you have a child of your own.Below, through the floorboards, she can hear Tony swearing about “bloody coal dust.” They have just had three bags of coal (the minimum) delivered to the cellar, which is also Tony’s new darkroom. Jonathan, who has been grumpy all morning, is momentarily lost in a world of Lego and she’s making the most of it. He starts school next week, and though she still loves him with unreasonable intensity, and though she fears the emptiness of the house once he does start school, she is also rather guiltily looking forward to it. She’s intending to use the first few weeks to finish decorating the lounge and dining room, and then she’s going to look for some part-time work.MoreLess
