If you’d like to skip straight to the creative project and learn how to make a pair of pyjama shorts from an old shirt (and a pillowcase!) then scroll down until you see Blue’s paw print below.
This episode is subtitled: ‘Sons and daughters…’
‘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.’
‘Trouble with parents? I know the feeling!’ said Gary as he whisked past us on his way out of the shop.
‘What’s Beryl done to Gary?’ Jaz asked.
‘He doesn’t seem to be happy that Beryl and Tommy are getting married. I can understand a child being apprehensive about his mum getting a new husband but Gary’s had his own life with Kim for years so I don’t know why he can’t just be delighted for her,’ I replied evenly, although inside I was seething at the way he was treating Beryl.
Kim flew over. ‘What did Gary say?’ she demanded.
