A notable hat-trick for Gabe in and around cricket practice:
1. Talking to Robin about why he hadn’t wanted to go to practice the previous week, understanding the reasons and helping find solutions.
2. Coming to the first half of the session and helping out with the younger kids’ practice.
3. Netting with a group including boys two years older and much bigger than he. He batted bravely against the fastest bowling he’s faced and bowled a 14 year old.


Eliza with a book is peaceful, contained and at ease. She surprised me today, showing me how she read a book upside down. Why? Because it’s fun, not that reading isn’t fun anyway, she was quick to reassure me.


At tea time, Robin said, “I don’t know what my life would be like without C.” C is Robin’s closest friend. At school, football club and whenever they can persuade parents to organise a visit to each other’s home.
