I decided to take her with me to see the older children doing their sports. We were leaving the house when Emma remembered her new doll. She wanted to take it with her and she was crying. I put my keys down and went into Emma's bedroom. It was really untidy! I found the doll in the end. It was under a blanket. Emma smiled happily when I gave it to her.

We were ready to go. I looked for my keys but I couldn't find them anywhere. Then Emma pointed at the shelf in the dining room and there they were next to the envelopes. I don't know how they got there. We left the house and walked to the school quickly. When we arrived, we saw my daughter, Holly. She didn't say "Hello" to us and she was a bit unfriendly, actually. She told me I was really late.
