Down on the farm

I'm travelling today so I'll leave you with the latest addition to the family album.

After graduating in July my son Ruari is currently working on a farm in Devon.

It's his third summer on the farm and here he is with a bull calf he delivered a couple of weeks ago.

It looks sweet enough but it's a lot bigger now, I'm told.

The picture, meanwhile, reminds me that a few years ago – when I asked Ruari what he wanted for Christmas – he put, at the top of his list, a pair of green Wellington boots.

Now that's what I call forward planning.
