I'm beginning to wonder how Thomas ever managed to live in a flat - he's such a garden person. First he bought a chainsaw to attack some old trees, then he bought some fruit trees and over the last few days a cultivator, hedge trimmer and some bulbs and seeds. He spends hours at the local nursery too. Yesterday afternoon Marcel went out to the shops, he was back less than 5 minutes when Charlotte decided to go too - but when she went out she came face to face with a dalek, about as big as herself - he'd obviously come up the path in the interim 5 minutes.
Thomas was thrilled with his new toy. Dad will no doubt have some comments on it, I am sure!
