Sore bottoms at bathtime

In spite of him usually being far more patient and good-natured than Mum, there was one area where our father’s tolerance was surprisingly lower – bath time. 

Being a hard working GP (who incidentally was also spending time conducting an affair, although we obviously didn’t know that then), Dad often arrived home late, usually just in time for myself and my little sister’s nightly bath.
