LAMB: My long limbed lunatic. You love almost nothing more than going to the beach and I’m glad your beautiful Mediterranean skin can handle a bit of sun. You paddle in the sea and explore rock pools with your daddy while your brother and I hide under a tree. If we stay long enough the sun dips down behind the hill, luring me out of the shadows. This is my favourite time of day. If I’m feeling brave I play with you in the shallow water and risk bumping a giant stingray the locals call George. You are much more sensible and level-headed than me and aren’t the least bit afraid of George. The other day you suggested that I should come with you to ‘meet’ him so that I wouldn’t be afraid of him anymore. I’m glad you didn’t inherit my over sensitive temperament.
