I hate to say it but there is still no word on Magnus. He remains missing at sea. Strathnuin seems covered by a black pall, Mrs Urquhart keeps bursting into tears and Georgie is even more dour than usual. As for Archie, well, who knows? He keeps himself to himself and resolutely says school is the best place for him. He will be home for half term in a week or so so I’d better find something uplifting for him to do. Hey ho, life goes on.
