I hear them creep up the stairs along with footsteps in the bedroom above.
After a while I hear the bed rhythmically creaking softly.
My wife says they have and that Chris would like to go upstairs with her and for me to stay here for a while and then perhaps come up after a few minutes.
I agree to this and tell them to be quiet and not wake the girls.
Whilst driving along we see a guy trying to hitch a lift the way we are going. I drive past and say look we may not get another opportunity like this and I’d really love to try and I’m sure you’d like it to.
