Reported conversations No. 11 : Moving house

Minus four at 8am. Dry, with a pink sunrise and a hard frost.

Walking down the hill the other day, we passed the same baita we pass every day...

AJ (aged 4) : Mama, there's a broken house.

Mama : Yes, darling. Look I think someone's using it as a shed.

AJ (lighting up with an idea) : Mama, we could buy it!

Mama : (absent-mindedly) I don't think so, sweetie.

AJ (after a pause) : No, I suppose we couldn't get it up the hill.

Lucy and us all had a good laugh. But seriously, AJ was one step ahead of you again. Its wonderful childish reasoning. Very intelligent.
