We are having a lazy day, as the weather is poo, and we have to pack to move on tomorrow. All of a sudden, Jago starts to complain about stomach pains. These get progressively worse in quite a short space of time reducing him to tears. I ask him to tell me on a scale … Continue reading It’s just a fart
