After the medical examination, she was found to have caught a bad cold and the doctor wanted her to stay in hospital for the night. She asked you to pick up your child at 4: 20 p.m. at his school gate, to supervise him doing homework and put him in bed at 9 p.m. She also hoped that you would prepare the breakfast tomorrow morning and send him to school before 7: 30 .
