1. The mother sitting opposite me on the train reapplies her lipstick. Her five-year-old son asks: 'Can I do that, can I do that?' At first she is reluctant... I mean, who wants their little boy using make-up? But it turns out that he means he would like to put it on her, and so, very carefully and surprisingly successfully against the gentle rocking of the train, he gives his mother another coat.
2. A pair of glittery dark blue ballet slippers.
3. Rosey and I are staying by ourselves in a 10-bedroomed house, which means there are lots of doors to throw wide or open a crack revealling the sunset and views of moor and mountain from different angles.
