Small daughter (tearfully): "Oh, Mums, I do so want to give this worm to my hen."
Mums doesn't like it, of course, but she's had to give in, and they'll be married in a year.
Only fancy, Mums and Daddy wanted the Count to have him killed!
I wonder, mums, if you would write something on a piece of paper for me.
"They were all so lovely I dared not choose," Mums was expatiating.
Luckily for the success of her lie, Miss Marks was not returning with Mums.
What Mums felt was, that she couldn't have resisted him, at her daughter's age.
We never expected it would come to that with me, did we, Mums?
Mums was not as calm about the future as she had tried to make her "dear boy" think!
Garth had gone no further than this when Marise came back, chaperoned by Mums.
