Farmer Jamie

Vanessa received a text at 4.30pm yesterday advising that today was "Harvest Day" in Jamie's nursery and he should arrive dressed as a farmer. 

Given the short notice, her options were a little limited but, thanks largely to Jamie's kindly cousin Jack, I think the objective was achieved. 

What impact his new persona will have on him clearly remains to be seen. 

Will he return this evening with a confrontational attitude, wool in his teeth and a belief that the world owes him a living? 

Let's hope not.

By the way, I don't mind admitting that the observation made by one of the nursery ladies - who claimed "he looks like Oliver Twist" - was treated with the disdain it deserved. 

"All he's missing is his wellies, which you have," I said. "Put them on him and he'll be transformed." 

Cheeky bitch.
