Don was looking forward to getting to go over to Orsino's place, just the two of them. It seemed like it had been forever since he'd actually gotten out the door without the twins. He'd already told Elizabeth and she was prepared to deal with the triplets alone later in the day. But the best laid plans, well, they don't typically stay laid out well. It was still the earlier in the morning when the phone rang and Don could tell something was going on. Elizabeth had come to him, a frown on her face and an apology already spilling out of her mouth. Her mum had a flat and Elizabeth was the only one close enough to come and help her. She had a car load of groceries just waiting to defrost and be ruined and she needed to get them home, change her flat, take the tire somewhere to be fixed... She needed Elizabeth.
He'd told her it was ok, he understood. She'd be gone most of the day, but it couldn't be helped. He thought of sending a message off to Orsino to tell him they needed to pick a different day to do this. He didn't though. Sure the plans had changed, but he could still help. The beer would have to be a no go though. He couldn't conceivably see totting around any alcohol when he'd have his kids. So instead of a bag of goodies for him and his friend he used magic to overstuff the baby bag, taking toys, extra clothes, diapers, cleaning clothes, a play pen of sorts and various other things he'd need to keep the triplets occupied while visiting Orsino.
And of course he got the kids ready only when it was closer to time to go. He set off then, making his way in a very muggle fashion to Orsino's place. It was a difficult trip, using public transportation to get to there since Elizabeth had their only mode of transportation that was safe for the kids. He made it though and he grinned, lifting a hand to knock on the door. And when it opened he quickly handed one of the triplets off to Orsino. "Here, hold him for me. Thanks."
