This would be the best day of the holiday, and it came as a surprise: a big surprise after the shouting match that went on last night.
He had fully expected to be packing up and leaving this morning; leaving early, like they always seemed to do. His mum twittering on about a language she couldn’t understand, and a religion that was not to her taste. But who cared about any of that; when there were miles of beaches and castles to be built, and Loch Roag down the road, where his friends, the otters, swam and played?
He waited on the announcement over breakfast, when porridge was wafted under his nose and firmly refused. Cornflakes, then square sausage in a roll with a dollop of brown sauce would do nicely for him - he had no intensions of eating any of their gruel, no matter how hard they coaxed.
