A portrait of each of my children once every week for 2016.
Kitty: Your favourite things this week have been flying your kite at school and actually doing the monkey bars. Though you don’t know it yet I’m taking you to the park this afternoon, rain or no rain, so I can see you in action. You also had your first Michaelmas at school, complete with an amazing dragon bread; you were so excited about it that we all had to come into your classroom to see its tail.

Elma: So we’ve still not managed to turn the “stage” into a play house, but I think you’re getting all the fun out of it how it is right now; you look quite at home pulling funny faces.

Pip: Never let it be said that you are not ready for hockey, at all times and in all places, and with any stick you can lay your hands on. Your Grandma says you are your Daddy all over again, except he didn’t discover hockey until he was 10 – lucky Grandma!
