KL has given us this picture to work with this week.
Josh had gone running down to the water’s edge with his bucket and spade then started screaming.
Terrified he’s stepped on a weever fish even though he was wearing his wellies, Esther rushed to his side.
Josh was tearful as well as fretful.
‘Mummy, mummy, mummy,’ he sobbed. ‘Make it better! Save it!!’
Esther looked down at his feet and the tiny fish squirming on the sand. There was no water close by, so she could only think it had been dropped by a gull in flight.
Carefully she picked it up and put it in Josh’s bucket which held a little water. Respectfully he carried it into the shallows and tipped it out.
‘Swim little fishie,’ he said solemnly, and waved it goodbye.
