Patrick is Nine

Kate and Ron gave a birthday dinner for him on Saturday so he could celebrate with his uncle and his aunts and cousins. Gone is the era of fluffy animals and plastic cars: he was delighted with his presents of games and books. The book he is holding is an old copy of A Christmas Carol which my parents gave to me on my ninth birthday. I hope Patrick will treasure it for another fifty eight years.

I know he will. And so will his mother!
