A few little stories (T)

1. Sebastian came up to our room last night at around midnight, and said "the dark is bothering me". I took him back and switched on his night-light, and he was content.

2. We've been playing a bit of backyard cricket. The rest of us (well, me and Eddie) deliver underarm lobs from a standing start, but Sebastian has taken to having this huge run-up, I guess having watched a bit of the cricket on TV with me.

3. Speaking of Cricket, Eddie and I have seen 4 Test playing nations at Lords in the last few weeks, as they hosted the Australia v Pakistan test, as well as England v Bangledesh. We go up on the bus after the tea break (after school) and it is cheap (he is free), and we walk home afterwards.

It has been a nice summer, but in case you have the idea this is any island paradise, it is raining pretty thoroughly today.
