The course of true love has hit a few bumps in the road for T2. He is find­ing he has a bat­tle on his hands for the at­ten­tion of his pre-school princess. She is as be­sot­ted with him as he is with her – she went to Por­tu­gal for a half-term fam­ily hol­i­day and a post­card duly ar­rived for T2 with his love in­ter­est declar­ing, to his de­light, that she was miss­ing him.

The prob­lem is she has a BFF (Best Friend For­ever) who also at­tends the preschool.

Quizzing T2 at the break­fast ta­ble about his plans for the day, he said he hoped one girl wouldn’t be at­tend­ing pre-school.

“Why, I thought she was your friend too?’’

He pulled a sad face (not the most sin­cere of sad faces it has to be said) and added: “She’s al­ways budg­ing in on me and ****** .’’

“Can’t you all play to­gether?’ I said. “No, she gets ****** do­ing colour­ing and I want to play su­per­heroes.’’

I’ve ad­vised him women gen­er­ally don’t find men in tights a good look!
