We can take a walk down tomorrow on our way to my Da’s garden it’s only a mile or so down the road.

Ian Garrick sells the best meat in Llandudno.’

“Great what time does he open so we can make a good start in the morning?’

“We would have to been up early as I have work.’

“I will get you up at five o’clock as I have my run to do over the valley for work Dai pointed out.’

Speaking of which it is ten o’clock and time I was in my bed.’ I will see you in the morning then Gordon, good night Tracey.’

Goodnight mother said Dai and kissed her on the cheek.’

“See you in the mornin’ son.’

“You will Da,’ good night.’

I think we all should hit the hay if we are to be up early.

“You’re right there a man needs his sleep if he is to do a day’s work.’

Thank you for a lovely meal said Gordon and went to the attic room and undressed whilst Tracey helped her mother clear the kitchen and wash the dishes.

“Seems like you have got yourself a good man there Tracey; he is hard working and cares about you too.’

“Yes, I like him a lot mam.’

“He was married and his wife died suddenly from a heart attack.’

Oh dear, that is tragic isn’t it.’ Does he have children?’

“Yes he has a girl who he adopted as a baby because he and his wife could not have children.’

“Where is the child now then?’

She is staying with he real father at the moment. He was very young when Dawn was conceived mam, Dawn’s mother died in childbirth, she was only sixteen.’

Now her father is older he came looking for her and now he has taken her for a while to bond with her.’

“I see, have you met her yet?’

“No, she is very bright apparently, she plays classical music on the piano to a high standard, and her father is a famous singer song writer.’

“How old is this girl?’

“Seven I think.’

“Do you think that you and her will get along, I mean if you are serious about Gordon what are the implications going to be like if you don’t?’

“I guess I will meet that when the time comes but all I can do is try mam.’

“Good luck with that then.’

“Right I’m off to bed mam I will see you in the morning, Goodnight’

Tracey kissed her mother then went up the stairs to the attic room.’

Gordon was sound asleep as Tracey undressed and slipped into bed beside Gordon she put her arm around him and closed her eyes.


Gordon took his toilet bag with an electric razor and plugged it in he preferred a wet shave but this would have to do until he got back. He washed and put on the black and yellow Fred Perry that he’d bought on then came into the kitchen. Alwen had made toast, boiled eggs, and some oatmeal for breakfast.

There was a pot of tea made and Gordon helped himself to a cup.

Both Dylan and his son came down soon after.’

Morning they all said as Dylan grabbed two pots and poured the tea in them whilst his son tucked into his breakfast of oatmeal then four eggs.’
