Aitch takes the kids for lunch at a Spur restaurant with her folks – Gogo ‘Ona and Grumpa Neil. It’s two days after their (joint) birthday (7 and 11).
TomTom is wolfing down a bowl of ice cream he has FINALLY been able to wheedle out of his Ma (he often doesn’t finish it, so Aitch is reluctant to buy it at restaurant prices).
His Gogo watches and comments: “My, Tommy, you’re eating that ice cream quickly!”
Well, he explains, We don’t get offered it much in our home.
