Gosh, who was it with the crystal ball? And never mind Nolothandu, *what*
would Feebs and Woy say?
One thing in Kates favour, she would have no difficulty in parting with a
child she had carried - she has done it three times already.
When she was annoyed with me my mother used to wish me one child like
myself. I think #1 daughter is nothing like me, but she is performing
the function my mother wished that child would do :). And I think
Nolithandra is Kate's parents' revenge in the same way.
She really didn't deserve Phoebe, who benefitted from Haley's
upbringing and so was too good for Kate. Since Jenny sponsored some of
Phoebe's travels I think she will be only too happy to fund a shopping
trip to london, and Kate did say she didn't want birthday gifts, so
Brian might now contribute for this too. But what a cheek to think of
asking them. She hasn't really grown up, has she?
B has this theory that today's young people, or a large proportion of
them, don't grow up at 16 or 18 or 21 as previous generations did.
They remain children in many ways until their 30s and 40s.
