We had only taken about six steps through the gates of Kuskovo Estate when I made one of those minor parenting decisions that you shortly come to realise was a Big Mistake. “Can I throw sticks in that pond?” asked Beanie-boy. “No, sweetie, let’s go on a bit further and find somewhere else.” He pouted and replied: “But I like this pond”. I looked at the algae-covered water and the steep edge, and (picturing him falling in) said firmly: “No, let’s find somewhere else”. A small decision. But it resulted in approximately 90 minutes with Beanie-boy grumping, whining and generally sulking, which wasn’t exactly what I had in mind for our visit to the beautiful Kuskovo Estate.
