Mel did the nursery run the other four mornings before getting the train from Carrickwel into the Lorimar offices in Dublin, but on Wednesdays there was a breakfast meeting of the marketing and publicity departments, so Mel had to be in work early. She remembered when getting up earlier on Wednesdays had been a total pain because she had to set her alarm clock for seven instead of half-past. That was before the children had come along, and before they’d moved to Carrickwel . Seven was a lie-in these days, now that Carrie woke up bright and breezy at six every morning.
It wasn’t that Karen didn’t support her daughter’s decision to work. She did. But without her, the whole show would have fal en apart, and somewhere in Mel’s head was the notion that this wasn’t quite the way it was supposed to be. She was supposed to be ultimately responsible for Carrie and Sarah not their grandmother. Take Carrie’s tonsil itis a month ago. Mel had taken her to the emergency surgery at the weekend, but when she hadn’t improved by Monday, Granny Karen had taken her to their regular GP.

She ripped her laddered tights off and stuffed them into her bag before struggling into the new ones. With one last tug at the tourniquet-tight bit cutting into her thigh, she smoothed down the fabric of her plum-coloured skirt - last season Zara, designed to look like Gucci - and raced out of the loo to the mirrors, where she hastily combed her short blonde hair with her fingers.
