Xavier and I took Rufus for a walk on loop that usually takes me about 45 minutes on my own. Luckily we’d had a big breakfast and there were plenty of blackberries, as it took us about four hours with all the rests Xavier demanded, where he told me I should draw. Xavier starts primary school the day after tomorrow – and no I don’t feel in the least bit weepy about the last of my children off to school. I’m counting the minutes for when I’ll have some time to think without the incessant demands of the little emperor.
