Kathy H.

What's this from?

I don't remember.


It's nothing.

Just a bruise.


Kathy. Kathy H.

Of course. Kathy H.

Come in.

So what can

I do for you?


I was wondering

what you said to Tommy.

Out on the

playing fields.

I see. Oh.

So what did I say?

I believe I was trying

to calm him down.

Because he seemed upset.

He explained

he was often teased

about sport and art,

so I told him

he shouldn't get upset

about these things.

The other children

are only teasing him

to get a reaction.

And if it happens

that he's not particularly

good at sport or art,

well, that doesn't matter.

It's not so important.

Thank you.


Aren't you sitting

with the girls?

Well, I just checked

and I'm pretty sure

I'm not sitting

with the girls.

I'm sitting with you.

I wanted to say

I'm sorry.

I didn't mean

to hit you.

I mean, I wouldn't

want to hit any girl.

But particularly

not you.

Well, it was

an accident,

that's all.


finish those vegetables.

I'm not gonna get angry

like that anymore.

Because of what

Miss Lucy told you,

about being creative?

How do you know

about that?

I'm nosey.

She can't actually

mean that being creative

isn't important, can she?

I mean, what about

The Gallery?

If being creative

isn't important,

then why have

a gallery at all?

I don't know. arching her back,

or perhaps with the aid

of a pillow,

the woman can

arrange herself...


Good morning, ma'am.

Good morning.

Can I help you?

I wanted one tea,

with milk

and sugar in it.

One tea. Right.


Oh! One tea with

milk and sugar

in it, please.

No, Tommy.

I want to hear

your own order.

Don't simply repeat

the one you've just heard.

What other drinks

do they serve in cafes?
