‘I’m sick of it,’ moaned Jaz. ‘I’m nearly 30 and they still want to know where I’m going, what I’m doing, when I’ll be back.’

‘To them you’re still their little girl,’ I said, ‘and while you’re under their roof it’s hard for your mum and dad to see you as an independent adult. You’ve probably just outgrown living at home.’

But she’d only given me five day’s notice. How was I going to manage to get everything sorted at Tulips, get Blue organised with somewhere to stay and gather everything together I needed for a holiday?
