The Rise And Fall Of Empire

While Ivy was learning how to kill people with a sword I was building "sandcastles" with Clover. They weren't really sandcastles- but little mounds of gravel with a bit of twig stuck in the top. After a while we ran out of space and twigs in the place where we were sitting and had to move further afield. The number of castles grew. How many did we have in the end- fifteen? twenty?

Eventually Ailz came to collect us for a stroll down to the lower field and said, "I'm William the Conqueror" and deliberately flattened our two most recent castles under the wheels of her mobility scooter.
