What better way to start the day ? Sophie finds a dead baby pigeon in the laurel hedge. She carries it into the house, skips up the stairs and heads into the bedroom to share her good fortune with 'The Font'.
After the 'commotion' has died down I spend some time explaining to Sophie that not everyone finds a cold pile of feathers, drool and congealed blood dropped on their pillow to be the best start to the day.
Sophie absorbs this news with a stoic ' It takes all sorts ' attitude.
