Mid-term report

I know that a lot of you like to see photos of my grandchildren, so here’s what they’re up to …

Tate is becoming the family swimming champion: these are his medals and ribbons to date.

Gil has finished his book about Jaims Bond [sic] and is now writing a story called

The Zooming Chickin!!!

(sic, again, and the exclamation marks are part of the title.) It has the most interesting and entertaining first paragraph of any child’s story I’ve come across but I can’t recall the exact wording so I’m not going to give you a bowdlerised version and ruin it. Engaging first paragraphs are not easy to write, so he obviously has a gift. (Who me? Biassed?) Gil is on the right, below.

As well as running around naked ( a favourite activity) Lux has been dressing up:

And Cece has learned to walk:

Meanwhile, my sweet peas are small but perky, like the grandchildren.
