Jim Dear and Darling nice people, but bad parents?
I don’t seem to recall there ever being a reason given as to why they must pack their bags and leave their practically newborn baby for a while. I just think it’s pretty poor parenting. I don’t think we’re ever told what Jim Dear or Darling do for a living, but I’m pretty sure if it was a business trip, whoever they were meeting would understand that Darling is a new mother and therefore should stay at home with her son.
Rather than call in some crazy, dog-hating old bag who comes complete with two psychotic cats.
I really hope Jim Dear and Darling didn’t bring Aunt Sarah back anything more than a small box of Quality Street to say thanks.
