Not long after 08:25 Partner has parked his car, nose uphill, with its tail alongside the junction-box.
During the late morning school-run, I notice that the sapling has been cut down to a stump about eighteen inches high. I have previously suspected that the sapling is dead.
Neither Scarlett nor Partner nor their boys make an appearance in the late morning school-run or afternoon school-run.
