1. To prepare lunch (just for me) without feeling as if there is a toddler time-bomb tick-tick-ticking away among the toys.
2. The cricket is rained off at lunchtime so the men come home. When I release Alec from the pushchair he immediately tells me "I've got a bat, Mummy!" Nick has bought him a miniature bat (it's meant for collecting autographs, but it's pretty much the right size for a toddler).
3. To do a small chore (printing and filling in a character sheet) to ready myself for an evening of fun next week (Tuesday Knights).
