THIS Saturday we’ll be back at MVP to celebrate their second birthday. Have two years really gone by so quickly?

‘And here’s to the girls who play smart-
Aren’t they a gas?
Rushing to their classes in optical art,
Wishing it would pass.
Another long exhausting day,
Another thousand dollars.
A matinee, a Pinter play,
Perhaps a piece of Mahler’s.
I’ll drink to that.
And one for Mahler!’
