Giving Mother Her Way

Giving Mother Her Way.

The dinner lasted a long while, and was great fun, and when it was over all of us wanted to help clear the things up and wash the dishes, only mother said that she would really much rather do it, and so we let her, because we wanted just for once to humour her.

It was quite late when it was all over, and when we all kissed mother before going up to bed, she said it had been the most wonderful day in her life and I think there were tears in her eyes. So we all felt awfully repaid for all that we had done.
