In Hamilton with Jadis and her five year old. I asked Master Five whether his mum was older than me or not (in fact I am eight years older) and my glee could not be contained when he said that his daddy was the oldest (who is six years younger than me), then his mum and then I was the youngest.

My glee was shortlived though when Jadis asked him why he thought I was the youngest and he explained that Dad was the tallest so he must be the oldest, and then Mum and then me. In other words he thinks I am the youngest because I am the shortest.

My half minute of gloating has now ended with Jadis being incredibly smug and me sulking.
