And then on the Tuesday after we got back from London, Angus started Year 1. He was so excited he didn't get to sleep until late the night before but at least it wasn't actually on his birthday this year.
Just in case you are wondering, the builders are coming at the end of the week to give a quote to rebuild the porch. As you can see, it really needs it! Those are the rotten window sills on the ground next to Angus's feet.
