1. To remember that Alec is quite capable of helping me put potatoes in the pan. And to remember again at mashing time: "Big Fella help Mummy."
2. Alec lies on the landing inspecting his toy tractor and singing his new favourite song, Charlie is My Darling (the bits of it that he can remember, anyway).
3. Nick is a little bit late, so I get to do a story with Alec.
