When I was seven or eight my mother taught me to cook, knit and crotchet so that I was able to get breakfast and go hopping off to school without disturbing her.  My mother would stay up all night reading, smoking and drinking milky coffee.  She insisted on kissing me goodbye with the most appalling “dog breath”, before I went off to school.  I dreaded those mornings.
