Yvonne Ellis knocked on her friend shortly after seeing Tom leaving.

George answered the door then shouted and told his mam who it was.

“Ask her to come in Georgie.”

Georgie stepped aside and allowed Yvonne in.

“Hi Margaret; are you alright?

“Aye; I’m just a bit tired you know.”

“Do you want a cuppa?

I just popped in to ask if you want to go with me to the bingo tonight. It will be my treat as I won last night when you didn’t come.”

“Oh great; I’m pleased for you Yvonne.”

Well get your glad rags on and I will come for you around six so we can get the early flyers alright pet?

“Alright then I will make Georgie’s tea early so we can go out.”

Tom is helping Keith Heads move a three piece suite; they are going to end up in the Ridges inn so I won’t see him until he rolls in drunk about twelve midnight.


 Right I’m off; got to go shopping with Nigel is there anything we can get you whilst we are out as we are taking the car?

“You could get me a few things if I give you a list would you be so kind and get them for me.”

“Look nowts the bother love just write down what you want and I will get them for you.”

“You are a good friend Yvonne; what would I do without you.”

“Find some other poor bugger I expect, she laughed. Give you a knock in half an hour for the list okay?

“Thanks Yvonne.”


Margaret wrote out the list then wrote a note for Tom in case he came back early and wondered where she was.

Margaret told her son that she was going to the bingo later and that she would make his tea early unless he wanted to go to the “Chippy”

“Can I have a battered Sausage mam with Chips?

“Yes Georgie son.”

Margaret was happy that she didn’t have to cook for either her husband or son tonight.

She ran herself a bath.
