One of my girls has a hobby! I find this slightly strange at four years old and stranger still, that identical twins can be so different. Mookin is a typical girly girl choosing to play with dollies and princesses, but Monkey likes… stones!
My family originates from Matlock in the peak district. This area is of course famous for its caverns, quarries and mines and I wonder if somewhere in her inner psyche she feels the need to bond with her ancestral roots. My grandfather was a miner after the war and I’m pretty sure he wasn’t the only one of our family to have worked them.
