“Where’s Claire? Is she upstairs making herself glamorous?”
“Chuh. Not upstairs… She’s in her make-up trailer at the theatre. Mum’s got her auditioning for a musical. She’s not coming. It’s too good an opportunity to miss apparently. Dad we’re not going to sit around politely drinking tea with Jesus all afternoon are we?”
