Breakfast in bed, we'll meet again and instructions.

1. I like coming in to see my mother in the morning while she has her breakfast in bed. Robert is there too. I make him move over.

2. Granny glances up from the pile of photos. 'Is my David still alive? I sometimes forget when I'm looking at pictures of him,' she says sadly. We talk about how they'll be meeting again one day, and she sings 'We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when.' Then she wonders if he's met someone else. All I can say is that this doesn't seem very likely.

3. Nick has been to see his mother today. She has given him a book called 'Your Marriage', which was given to her by her parish vicar when she was engaged.
