The same, children are home and a satisfying conclusion.

1. As we walk up the hill with our lunch in a shopping bag, we meet our neighbour, who has been out to do the same thing.

2. I am close to a good stopping point when I hear voices downstairs: the children have come home.

3. At the end of our book, good triumphs, the hero gets a medal and a standing ovation, while the antagonists are just sort of... brushed aside and rendered harmless. It's a satisfying ending. There's no need for revenge, which, in any case, rarely feels good when achieved in real life.
