"In the afternoon Gerry and I decided to take the children down to the beach...we wanted to do something different with them, just the five of us." (p.57. Note: they all go to the beach).
This is followed by a 'Woman's Own' style description of rain, discomfort, and agonising over who should fetch the ice creams.
"Having polished off her ice-cream, Madeleine asked if she could go back to the Mini Club now, please." (p.58)
"We dropped the kids off at their clubs for the last hour and a half, meeting up with them as usual for tea." (p.59).
And there's Gerry already signing Madeleine into her 'lobster' group at the Mark Warner creche at 2.30 p.m. on the afternoon of Tuesday May 1;
not for the last hour and a half as you might expect either.
Far from being signed out again at 4.00 p.m., Madeleine is not signed out at all.
And if you think that's an astonishing feat of teleportation, you'll no doubt be amazed to discover that, at the very same time (2.30 p.m.) Kate McCann is elsewhere signing both Sean and Amelie into their 'jellyfish' group, where they stay for fully two hours and fifty minutes, before Kate signs them out again (at 5.20 p.m).
