“Amen they all repeated.’

“That was lovely Michael thank you.’

“Can we eat now said Harry?’

“Aye gan on son said his father as he cut into a Yorkshire pudding and dipped it into the gravy.




The Kinnear’s were woken again by the sound of Bobby crying it was now nearly eight o’clock. Both Laura and Albert jumped out of bed at the same time. Albert went to the toilet first as Laura went to the baby’s cot she carefully lifted him out of the cot and kissed both cheeks. “I think someone has done a little poo haven’t they said Laura who could smell something coming from Bobby’s nappy.

The toilet flushed and Albert washed his hands and face then dried himself on the towel hanging on the rail.

He instinctively went to the kitchen and filled a kettle and switched it on. He spooned the milk formula into a glass jug measuring the spoons with a special blue coloured scoop that came with every tin of powdered milk. When the kettle was boiled he poured it into the Jug then stirred it to get rid of any lumps then the milk was poured into the bottle and then placed into a bowl of cold water to cool down. He brought the dish with tepid water whilst Laura changed Bobby this time she quickly placed the flannel over his tiddler so he wouldn’t wee on her.’

“We will give him some milk Albert; I want you to make him some thin porridge with honey mixed in it. I’m going to see it he’ll take that, if he does then its solid foods for him from now on and we will only give him a bottle if he needs it.’

I want you to get the potty out as well Albert because as soon as he is able, I want Bobby potty trained. ’We will read to him after breakfast and then I can give him his first bath. The water should be only warm. Test it with your elbow.’ “We don’t want to scald you do we Bobby.’

“What are we having for breakfast?’

Certainly not a full English Albert.’

But it’s Sunday; I always have a full English on a Sunday morning.’

“Well from now on we are going to eat healthily, you can have a bowl of Alpen and a banana.’

Albert sulked as he went into the kitchen and took out the box of Muesli and poured out the contents into two bowls.

“We are having coffee aren’t we?’

“Yes Albert she said raising her voice. “I cannot function without a cup of coffee in the morning.’

“Don’t bring it in here leave it in the kitchen. I don’t want any hot liquids around Bobby do you hear me.’

“Yes, I heard you.’
