Holden was only nine the day of the trouble.

            It came on like the winter dark.

            His mother had patted his head and picked a thread from his collar. The moon sliced silver into the sky’s bruised belly...

During a spot of cleaning, I discovered this nugget of fashion wisdom from Bunny.

From the desk of Bunny, sometimes referred to as Bad Bunny by Au Pair. For the record, I'm not really bad, just misunderstood and often in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Bunny wished to make clear his concerns around the festive season in his annual letter to Santa. I tried to dissuade him, but, surprisingly, he just would not listen.

Dear Diary,

It was a marvellous day, at least for Bunny, when he arrived on the doorstep of my wee Nursery. Full of mischief and mis-adventure this 'endearing' Bunny was destined to keep my ever patient self reaching for the first aid kit, and at the end of a tiring day...

Dear Diary,

On a recent foray to the High Street with a certain Bunny of the mischievous kind, it is my regret to inform you that said Bunny has had a run in with the boys in blue. Yes, I deceive you not. My wee charge has fallen onto the wrong side of the law.
