And he's off
Being substantially taller than his sister, Hugger Steward is not dwarfed by his backpack in the same way at all - but he has packed it with even more care, and has done all he can to prepare for most eventualities. I just wish his mother were more prepared for the central purpose of parenthood, which is, I'm sure, to work yourself out of a job.
Never mind. The Dufflepud has GCSEs ahead, so there should be quite enough to keep me occupied as a mum, assuming that my parishes leave me with time or emotional energy to spare - and July isn't really that long to wait for a hug.
