Alice, Nicholas and Christina Farrer with me on the landing of their house in Scotland. Alice is my god-daughter and is a teenager now. They are robust, pink-cheeked and sporty children who have masses of animals and their childhood is idyllic. When I stayed with them on this occasion, they all got into bed with me in the morning, with icy cold feet and hands and we played I Spy. Christina did one which we had to give up on, which was “I spy with my little eye, something beginning with F and S”. We tried and tried and finally had to stop and she said “It’s Fly Shit!” On the window pane was a tiny little speck of fly shit and she had spied it…..
