"Mummy? One day can we go to a castle, like where princesses live and have a picnic?"
"You mean a castle like the one we went to in England?"
"Yeah, or like that one there.." She pointed to one of the old signal towers that dot the coastline, and nowadays are mostly private homes.
"Well we couldn't have a picnic in that one, it belongs to somebody. I went there once with Daddy."
"You did? Where was I?"
"It was before you were born."
"Well where was I then? Was I in England?"
"No! You weren't anywhere. You didn't exist."
"Was I at home then?"
"No,...Um, before you were in Mummys tummy. Mummy and Daddy hadn't decided to make you yet, so you weren't here."
"Well where was I then?"
"Where then? Was I in your tummy?"
"No, you weren't even in my tummy then, it was before."
"No, Mummy, I was in your tummy..your tummy is not nowhere, silly!"
