Jean reads a story about some chairs

Spooky that Jessica comments on Paul’s return home just as Jean reads “it’s good to be home again”

Charlotte, Matthew, Jessica and Sacha in the sitting room

charlotte brandishes a club; jessica an elephant; i don’t know the year, but sacha was plainly a monkton house boy here; i think his first term was 1984-09

i have always had a tough time sitting through concerts whose music i have not known; in these early years, at saint david’s hall, cardiff, i remember finding beethoven symphonies quite hard going; on one occasion in particular; i don’t remember which year;

i was in the raised seating at the conductor’s 2 o’clock, with at least mum; i was sitting obediently through the same old oom-pah oom-pah, when i had an attack of growing pains; i think they were in my knee; not wanting to spoil the occasion for other people, i cried in silence;

after the concert, some old fart congratulated me for having kept my shit together; huh; some money would have been nice
