The Baby Sitter
All the other days they ate at the Tapas. From Sunday, April 29th to Thurday, May 3rd. 5 days, 5 dinners, at Tapas.
Lunch said Matthew, would be eaten in a group, this included the children, Payne’s apartment commonly used, due to its larger size. Matthew also explained the first booking made for dinner at the Tapas, which was for Sunday night, was made by O'Brian, but he is not sure.
Matt clarifies, Monday morning his wife Rachael, undertook such reservations, adding still that it would have been for all the remaining days except for Friday 4th May, as a Tennis Club dinner for that night had been planned.
Jane Tanner also confirms the booking was permanent for 20h30...until the end of the stay.
Gerry McCann said that Sunday lunch was spent in the apartment of Payne except for Matt , who it appears was the first to be 'sick'. Matt also did not attend Sunday dinner. Matt would have been the baby sitter for Sunday night.
Dianne Webster said there was no need for the Paynes to check on their children as they had a baby monitor
(This goes well with the theory of Paulo Rebelo, the group cannot say they were all together at the table at the same time because this never happened and they could not guarantee an observant waiter would make a statement to this effect., always someone was missing and that someone was the chosen baby sitter for the evening)
Wednesday May 2nd, Rachael Oldfield was feeling unwell and stayed in her apartment all night.
Her husband Matt was at the restaurant. Wednesday 2nd May... they all remember staying late for a drink at the bar. They did not return to their apartments until close to midnight.
