Will you please go backwards down ladders, slow down and up to date.

1. Alec tumbles head first down the ladder from the wooden fort. "It looks like he's saved himself, though," says Katherine. He ends up in a sort of handstand, propped against the ladder. There is no howling.
I hurry over to rescue him.
"Hallo Mummy, what just happened?"

2. "Don't hurry," says the taxi driver, "See, I've turned the meter off. There's no need to hurry."

3. To talk with Nick (in whispers) as we finish packing a sleeping Alec into his nappy and pyjamas.

  1. Yes, best to teach him that feet should be towards the bottom, not head.
