What a week. Happy birthday, Leo. We love you.

Now the festival of Leo is over, we can reveal the secret commission we made…

this beautiful painting, by local artist Veronica Holland. Leo has admired her vibrant and joyful work for some years and now he has a piece painted just for him.

Camp for the Year 11s tomorrow, so I’ll be up bright and early to get the boy to the bus; the world keeps rolling round, like a big blue marble, as much as I would like to pause for a bit and contemplate things.
