1.      The atmosphere doesn’t feel light and cheerful. It feels so full of and rigid with worry, that one can imagine cutting it with a knife. This kind of atmosphere is felt when people are worried or angry about something and don’t want to or can’t talk about it.
2.    While I am talking about this, in this case about things I find frustrating or annoying.
3.    No matter what Aurora says to her brother about not taking her things, he keeps on taking them. He doesn’t care at all what she thinks or what she says.
4.    pinch = steal, take without permission
5.     There won’t be any more holidays.

MR BAILEY: (to Andy) We had a nice chat to your teachers at the parents’ meeting this evening.
ANDY: Actually, dad, I’ve been meaning to talk to you about that.
MR BAILEY: Were you worried? Well, you needn’t have been. Your teachers are very happy with your work. In fact, we didn’t have to stay at the meeting very long. They all had only one thing to say: you’re doing brilliantly.
MRS BAILEY: We’re both so proud of you! (She’s enjoying her meal.)
ANDY: Thanks mum. Actually, I was a bit worried but not about my grades. (playing with his food) I …
MR BAILEY: You’d better start thinking about what university you want to go. With your expected grades, you’ll have a choice!
ANDY: Well, that’s what I want to talk to you about. I don’t want to go to university.
MRS BAILEY: You what? (putting down her knife and fork quickly). Oh, of course, it’s the money. You’re worried about the money, aren’t you? Well, let us worry about that. You needn’t give it a second thought. Just concentrate on your studies and …
ANDY: Mum! You’re not listening to me. I’m not going to university. I’ve got other plans.
MR BAILEY: What are you saying, Andy?
ANDY: I’ve thought about it very carefully and I’ve decided to leave school at the end of the year and become a football player.
MR BAILEY: (standing up suddenly) A football player! A bright lad like you!
MRS BAILEY: Oh, Andy! How can you do this to us? We’ve worked hard to give you a good education. You’ve got a brilliant future ahead of you. And now you tell us you want to be a football player!
ANDY: I’m sorry if you’re disappointed. But, look, you needn’t worry about me. I do have a brilliant future – as a football player.
MR BAILEY: You’re right, Andy, we are disappointed. We don’t need to tell you that. But listen. You’ve still got plenty of time. You don’t have to make any decisions now. Why don’t you think things over for a few days?
ANDY: OK, dad. But my mind is already made up.
