The three year old has a new den in his garden, build by his dad and equipped by his mum – I am told she has a piece of carpet that will do for the floor. The den is a work of art. It even has roofing felt. There are shelves and things, and steps so he can reach them. A door will be fitted soon… though according to the three year old, there is one thing missing. ‘I need to chose some wallpaper,’ he said.
