This album cover recreation was the twelfth photo in the Care Home Album Covers series, and recreated Blink-182's 1999 album Enema of the State. Robert really wanted to recreate this album cover, such is the power of the image. This recreation took the greatest amount of planning, hence it being the last photo in the initial series. Robert made the nurse's cap, the blue butterfly tattoo and the Blink-182 badge, completing the props with a chef's whites, applying Hilda's own eyeshadow, eyeliner, blusher and lipstick, and Hilda's own red top replacing the red bra. Robert's wife was already in labour with their third child, but she allowed Robert to return to work briefly. Robert took Hilda off to get her ready, completing the photoshoot just before he got a phone-call to say that an ambulance had been called for his wife as she was in labour and that he should hurry home. Thankfully, Robert and his wife had a baby girl safely, born less than an hour after the photo of Hilda was taken.
