Ash, drawing and reciting Fortunately the Milk. I am a proud parent of a multitasking boy. I’m off to the wilds to write for the next couple of weeks and will miss him very much.

For a month Ash has been certain what he wanted to be for Halloween. A Zombie. A Green Zombie. Like the ones in Paranorman. He’s talked about it every night and every day. This afternoon he let us get half way through putting his green make up on before he decided it was too scary. Fortunately last year’s costume, a dinosaur rider, was ready, waiting and acceptable.

Ash in the morning. Filmed slightly surreptitiously as I wanted to catch the thing he does where he just recites poems and books to entertain himself. This morning it was The Gruffalo's Child and Fortunately The Milk...

On a cafe boat with Ash, after watching the marvelous Insect Circus at the Puppet Theatre. My hat (since many people have asked) is from @agnesb_officiel, and is one of my favourite things. Photo by @amandapalmer.

From Amanda's feed. We were on our way back from the Puppet Barge, where we saw the Insect Circus: beautiful wooden marionettes. Ash has decorated himself with leaves and is wearing a Coraline tee shirt as an overskirt. I'm wearing my fancy hat, and a nice coat I picked up from a second-hand store in Marylebone. My feet are not quite as big as they look.

I am suspecting he only asked me for a slice of cheese so that he could say, in a northern accent that is definitely not his own, "Hmm. It's like no cheese that I've ever tasted, Gromit."

Each of us has the right to say #IBelong. (My grandfather came to England before WW1 but was stateless, all his life.) I'm proud to support UNHCR as they continue to fight for the rights of stateless people and refugees around the world. #WithRefugees

Four years ago, on 16 September 2015, Ash was born. Right now he's funny, unstoppable, musical, loves stories and the Beatles and climbing trees. (While technically all those things are true, actually right now he's fast asleep.) Who knows whether any of these things will be true a year from now, or a dozen? This is him, yesterday, clambering inside an ancient oak tree. It's a delight, if some days an exhausting one, to be his father. Happy fourth birthday, Mister Ash.

For the record I would like to make it clear that I had nothing to do with the theft of the Golden Toilet from Blenheim Palace. My presence here is purely coincidental. I did not take it nor do I currently know where it is. But it has to be the best crime I've ever had nothing to do with today.

He starts school tomorrow. One era finishes, a new one begins. He's a small magical person, and I learn a lot from him. Thank you, Ash.

I spent some time over the last few weeks in my favourite place in the world, the Isle of Skye. This is a photo I took of the Quairang, which is a lot like being in Faerie. Go to Skye, but go off-season, when the weather is blustery and the queues are gone, and the restaurants will be happy to feed you without you booking in advance. (Talking about which, thank you Scorrybreac in Portree for feeding us so fantastically.)

We are off on a father and son bonding trip and there isn't much in the way of wifi or phone service here. So I'm basically offline now for a week or so. It's magical and hard work. I will be back sooner or later but don't expect Twitter or Tumblr questions to be answered for a while.

A young bear who has taken to hanging around in the woods until we feed the chickens, then loping in and chomping on whatever he can find. On the good side, he doesn't seem to have any interest in eating the chickens.
