It was just as well Mickey the robot was there to help with the twins when Emily was otherwise occupied.

But their birthdays were just around the corner. – first Harry then Charlotte.

That didn’t mean that they got any more attention – in fact they needed more…

Emily was, by now, heavily pregnant so she couldn’t exactly run around.  And then her time came:

She made young Bjorn, recently engaged, a father of a boy, Jerry.

The father of the twins, Hereward, dropped out of university and joined Emily.  At least he can help out with the children.

Emily’s father, Michael, succumbed to the flu while in gaol.

He was just 59.
