Yes, we went to the light house then I took them down to Tynemouth to the Priory then onto North Shields Fish Quay where we ate fish and chips out of newspaper didn’t we love.’

Yes, said Rosina, first time for me I must say but I liked.’


It’s no wonder that Dawn didn’t drag you all in to the Fisherman’s Mission for kipper’s.’

Yes she wanted to but we persuaded her to have fish and chips instead.’

“Did have fun Dawn?’

Yes, Dad it was I got some great shots on my camera.’

“You will have to come around and show me when you’ve developed them.’

“Yes I will; I have my own developing room now you know.’

“No flies on you is there; “what with your own recording studio too, we hardly get to see much of you these day’s.’

 “You know how it is daddy; I’m either writing or recording with the band.’

“I just wish that you would make the effort to get to know Tracey better that’s all.’

“Well we all went out today didn’t we?’

“Come on Gordon give her a break said Jim.’

 “It is alright for you Jim, no disrespect but you are in the music business I am not; you see a lot more of Dawn than I do.’

“Listen, I don’t stop Dawn from visiting you; it is her choice.’

“Please can you stop fighting; Daddy I will stay over tonight alright and spend tomorrow with you.’

“That would be nice.’

“What about the album we were meant to be working on Dawn.’

“It will have to wait dad; this is more important.’

“You can work with the band and lay off the music; I will come up with some lyrics.

“I thought I was the song writer here?’

“Look Jim I don’t want to argue with you; I’m staying with Tracey and my dad tonight alright I will be back around five tomorrow.’

Jim picked up his bottle of Budweiser then drained it then told Rosina they were leaving.’

“Look Jim I think you are being a little insensitive here; please sit down and have another beer.’

“I don’t want another beer I want to go home; are you coming?’

Rosina didn’t answer.’

“Fine said Jim as he stood up and started to walk out the door.’

“Daddy shouted Dawn as she ran after him.’

Once in the car park Jim turned to her and said look princess if you want to screw up your career okay do it.’ You have come so far just to throw it all away.’

“Daddy I’m not throwing it away.’ Gordon is my dad he brought me up. I love him as much as I love you.’ don’t make me choose who I wish to be with.’

I haven’t seen much of my dad since we started making records and I understand how he feels just as I understand how you feel too. Just give me a little space will you?’

“Okay I’m sorry I will see you tomorrow.’ I love you princess.’

“I love you too daddy.’

“Jim got into the car and drove away.’ He sped along the road and a traffic policeman followed him for two miles before pulling him over.

“Good evening sir could I see your drivers licence.’

“What is it officer?’
