L says she has an awful lot of reading to get through and I get home to find her kicking balls and reading at the same time. She’s quite adept at it. Now all she needs is to do is to do all that whilst holding a glass of Friday night wine. I suppose she could always put it in one of those drinks bottles or perhaps in a camelback.
Tonight we watch a film, Oranges and Sunshine, which has the always wonderfully happy Emily Watson in it. It is set, briefly, in 1980s Nottingham and concerns a social worker (Emily Watson) who attempts to reunite children who were sent to Australia in child migration schemes years ago, but are now grown up, with their parents back in Britain.
