    ... gusto and set about creating an island fortress with integrated moat. We drew up blueprints and brought in a contractor to help (he says he was two, but I am not sure), before starting work on the foundations. Dylan had brought his best spade and delegated the heavy digging to Daddy. The contractor seemed happiest eating grapes - get what you pay for, I guess.
