10



It's Wilfs 10th Birthday. So far today he has bumped in to Kelly, quite literally, on his morning walk and had croissant crumbs drizzled luxuriantly into his mouth at the cafe. Later he will be taken in the car for a paddle in the stream before returning home for a celebratory fish pie lunch. There will of course be coconut ice cream. His attitude towards turning ten ? " A diamond is a piece of coal that stuck to the job ".
