Now we can spend quality time together discussing the day’s activities on the drive home. ‘That was so embarrassing,’ Bella says. ’ Sam asks. ‘Minor accident,’ I reply. No one speaks for the rest of the trip. I don’t think the bus incident is a big deal, but clearly the kids do. To make amends, I take them to the local sushi bar for dinner. Sushi’s their favourite. Mind you, once when I dared offer them raw fish at home, there was anarchy. ’ Bella had said, almost gagging.
Camp was great, Mum. Thanks for asking,’ says Bella, coming into my room after a while. ‘God, it’s filthy in here. I can hardly breathe for the dust. ’ Sam joins her. ’ On and on they go, bombarding me with complaints and questions. I look over at the photo beside the bed. It’s of the four of us - me, Max, Sam and Bella - taken five years ago on a beach holiday. We’re all smiles. It’s just a brief romanticised snapshot of our lives, though.

Dom was so handsome, athletic, and those sparkling blue eyes . . This particular photo was taken the first night we moved into a fabulously dilapidated terrace at the seedy south end of Newtown. It wasn’t until after the pub closed, and we were standing outside our new home utterly pissed, that we realised no one had brought a front-door key.
