Nick came round and drank coffee in our breakfast room. He read Mum’s horoscope so it was funny. (“Today, you’ll start upon a journey”).

Then Mum did start upon a journey. We went to Cambridge. We took Nick with us. We had lunch at The Orchard, and then walked along the river. I worried that people might think Nick was my father. I'm taller than Nick.

When we came back from Italy the car broke down. Mum cried and Jack sat in the front seat and told her it was ok. He picked at the stain on the car seat.
