  • I arrived at my daughter's house this morning ready to look after my three grandsons whilst she and D attend a family wedding.

    As they went out of the front door, elegantly dressed, five year old R bid them farewell by telling them:

    "This guy has a gun and its out of control", showing them the tiny lego figure in this image.

    "Great," said his mum absent-mindedly as she checked she had her make up bag.

    (R's brother gave him a helping hand as the figure posed for the camera.)
