I notice that the local playground has been cordoned off with tape & there's a large sign announcing an archaeological dig in progress. The mind boggles. Did some toddler unearth a dinosaur thigh or Neolithic jawbone amongst the dog turds & fag ends in the sand pit? "Look Mummy what I found!"
Reminding me of Emma's question as we walked around the Greek Vase collection of the Metropolitan Museum: "why do Athena & Didier go all that way to Crete when they could find everything they need here?" Quite.
I see Jonny Trunk is selling mp3s of the Flashing Blade theme song. Next only to White Horses for its magical power to transform me back to being an 8 year old.
