it is Zoe’s birthday tomorrow (5). cards have started to arrive, some containing crisp new five and ten pound notes. I put these in a safe place.
An hour ago Zac (7) brought Zoe to me and asked whether i thought that 25 books was good value for £5. Yes, I said.
A minute ago I wandered into Zac’s room where he and Zoe sat, cross-legged on the floor surrounded by books. Zac had a calculator out and had added up the RRP of each book. A deal was about to go down.
