    ‘So?’ William asked over supper. ‘How was your first day?’

    He looked around the table at the five of us, the first strands of spaghetti slooped into our mouths. ‘Honour?’

    ‘Fine.’ She kept her eyes on her plate and I saw Jake glance at the narrow line of her high shoulders up against each ear.

    ‘Jake?’ William bent forward, waiting to hear the worst, but Jake looked clear into his eyes and said it had been good. ‘We’re doing woodwork. And I’m making a bowl.’

    ‘That’s great.’

    ‘Yes, a pudding bowl.’ He said, dipping his chin with mirth, and he glanced meaningfully at William’s dark brown round of hair.

    ‘At kindergarten,’ Pandora piped up, ‘we sang lots of songs.’ And she started lisping one into her father’s ear. ‘And they played it on a ladle, a ladle, a ladle and they played it on a ladle and his name was Aikin Drum.’

    ‘And how about you, Lolly?’ William asked, serious, as if there might be a reason why she should need particularly to be asked, and Lolly told us all about her teacher Miss Bibeen, and how she’d been on holiday in Japan. ‘She told us about it for the whole main lesson.’ And Lolly launched into a detailed account.

    I waited, sucking up spaghetti, slowing each mouthful for my turn, but William got up to fill the water jug and without seeming to see me, he began to tell us about a school play he wanted to direct.
