As a birthday treat for Alyx, I arranged for Robyn to do a puppet-making workshop with us while the boys went on their Emirates Stadium tour. Later, while Jake napped, we all played a quiet game of Uno for old times’ sake. In the evening, Paul and I took advantage of one last night of babysitting and went out for dinner at Mildred’s. Although we enjoyed it, we really just wanted to have a lie down in peace and quiet. And even at home with Tony, Jo & Alyx for company, Jake cried when we left and asked for us.
