1. The traffic lights at the cross roads are not working because the man from the council has the control box open so he can adjust something. Everything is orderly, with drivers waiting politely and waving each other on; but Nick says: 'Had I better see you across the road?' I am amazed and touched by this kindness, but I tell him that if he sees me over the road, he'll have to cross twice as many roads to get to where he's going.
2. I come home to find Abel and Cole have taken away our empty vegetable boxes and replaced them with two full ones.
3. After supper, the box of chocolates comes out and is passed around while we play cards on the rug.
