.. I have been promising to take George to the library, just the two of us, and so last night after school I did.
He went straight to the reference books, wasn't interested in looking at the fiction at all and chose six books. He was very decisive, no messing about. The first one was on reptiles. The picture of a boa constrictor swallowing a whole deer, thrilled him to bits, me not so much. The others were - Shipping Disasters, The Human Body, Cranes, Big Cats and I can't remember the sixth one. The things that interest little boys are so different from the things that interest little girls aren't they?
