Photo - guess who dressed little Jaya today?

As it happens, four week days out of five I look after young Jaya until nursery starts at 1 PM and on the fifth day I prepare her for nusery starting at nine so the answer is likely to be me. Moreover, at the weekend when her mum dresses her she does not wear odd socks. My late dad taught me that it was a bit lower middle class to worry about matching socks and, at this point, Jaya agrees with him and with me on this matter.

The book she is reading is three little pigs. Mochin. Reading might be over-egging the pujdding but she recounts a story told to her by others as she turns the pages. My young daughter is already rather bookish demanding story after story before agreeing to go to bed.
