At lunchtime today Jane had a lunch appointment with a friend, so Isaac and I first went to Greggs to get him a sausage roll and a bottle of summer fruits juice.
“I’ll get points for that,” he said, gesturing towards the bottle.
And he was right: the boys get bonus points if they try something new.
We had a lovely time, sitting beside the Kinnessburn watching the ducks, some of whom came up to say hello. Then we took a walk along the stream to find more ducks, before heading up the hill towards my office.
We took a shortcut through the grounds of Dyer’s Brae, one of the School of Biology buildings,and popped up on Queen’s Terrace, opposite the Bute building where I work.
“Wow!” said Isaac, recognising where we were. “It’s like we teleported here!”
Well, we didn’t teleport again up to the office—instead, we took the lift.
And there he sat at my desk and we did some pair programming.
Well, I say ‘pair programming’. Isaac watched a Batman video on YouTube while I analysed our projects boards to determine where our business-as-usual, portfolio, project and consultancy tasks are all tracked.
Until mummy arrived.
What fun! I love that boy.
