“Hello son, what brings you here on a Sunday Morning?’

“I’ve got something to tell you and mam, come inside your breakfast is ready.’

Jack put down his dibbler and then headed for the door he slid it along and waited for his son to come out before closing it.’

Jack went straight to the sink and washed his hands then dried them on the towel that his wife used.

Both Jack and Albert sat at the table as Nelly put down their full English and then took toast out of the toaster and carefully spread some butter on it then cut them into triangles.

“Thanks mam.’

“What is it you’ve come to tell us then son?’

“Laura and I have a baby.’

“What you have him at home now?’


“What’s he like said his mother who was totally overwhelmed.’

“He’s a boy just like we wanted dad and he’s six months old.’ He’s big for his age you want to see the size of his tiddler.’

Jack and nelly both laughed.’

“Why didn’t you bring him around son?’

“Well we were up most of the night mam and Laura is tired she’s still not right you know after her hysterectomy.’

“When can we see him then?’

Tomorrow mam; the thing is we need someone to look after Bobby whilst we both go to work.’

“Bobby is that what you have called him.’

“Yes mam, Robert Millsap Kinnear.’

“I guessed she’d have her father’s name in there first.’

“Don’t be upset mam, at least you have a grandchild.’

Yes, I’m sorry son it’s just that Elizabeth Millsap annoys me so.’ I bet she won’t have anything to do with young Bobby, will she?’

“They don’t know that we have Bobby yet.’

“No doubt Laura will be taking Bobby up to the house to see them.’

“We always go on a Sunday to her house for dinner mam you know that.’

Yes that’s only because Laura won’t come here.’

“Please mam let’s not fight.’
