“Albert poured milk over his cereal then ate it in sufferance.’

“Are we going to my mother’s house first she will need to know before tomorrow if we are going to work.’

“Yes you can slip around and tell her, I’m getting Bobby bathed.

“Are we not taking him around so they can see him?’

“Your mother will have plenty of time to see him tomorrow; just tell her that we are going to my mother’s for dinner.’

“Are we; you never said last night.’

 “Well I’m telling you now Albert; why do you have to make an issue out of everything. My father will be dying to see little Bobby.’

“I bet your mother isn’t.’

“Don’t you be calling my mother, she can’t help the way she is.’

“She hates my guts, every time I go around there she is picking fault with me.’

“You should try being nice to her.’

“How can I be nice to her Laura when all she does is pick on me?’

“Don’t raise your voice in here Albert, you’ll upset Bobby.’ “I don’t want him brought up in a stressful home.’

Albert drank his coffee at the table then went to the bedroom and got dressed.’

He slipped on his shoes then got his coat from the peg.

“Don’t be long Albert. I don’t want you to be driving in busy traffic with the baby.’

Albert closed the door then headed up the street, he turned right then crossed the road which led to his mother’s street.  He could smell the bacon coming from the house and he hurried along.

Mam he shouted as he went into the open door.

I’m in here cooking your father’s breakfast. Have you eaten?’

“I’ve had a bowl of that Alpen Laura bought. It tastes awful.’

“Do you want me to make you a proper breakfast?’

“Would you mam.’

“Give me a minute and I will put some more bacon in the pan.’

Nelly used two frying pans when cooking the breakfast. One for the bacon, sausages and mushrooms the other was used to fry the eggs. The beans were put into a pan and left ready to heat up and the tomatoes under the grill. Nelly added four slices of bread to the toaster then fried four eggs.’

“Go give your father a shout will you son, he’s in the greenhouse.’

Albert went out the back door to the garden he walked along the manmade path from old paving slabs acquired from the council and slid the glass door along.’
