On My Doorstep

Uncovering the Past

When our grandaughter was with us over Christmas she went out into the garden and came back with this toy* that she had found. She was very pleased to have unearthed it. Like a budding archaeologist, in fact.

It was one of our late son's prized possessions, played with until it was abandoned in the garden in favour of something else, nearly thirty years ago.

I was in two minds whether to keep it in the house or return it to its resting place. I kept it in the house where it has begged to be blipped ever since.
