Dot writes: Ken has been away since first thing yesterday and isn’t back until tomorrow afternoon. Hugh has been taking it surprisingly well considering the passionate attachment he has been showing towards his father ever since Mum got taken over by that boring baby. He does seem to understand that Ken is not around and didn’t try to go into the bedroom to him as normal when he got up this morning. But just now he reached his limit. He lay down on the floor and began a chant of “Daddy, Daddy, Daddy.” Poor little thing. He is now recovering with the aid of an alternative male role model – Bob the Builder.
