  • Captain Underpants. Reading in general, especially late in the evening when it’s bedtime.
  • Cycling.
  • Board games. We’ve been playing Secret Code several times recently.
  • Minecraft. Playing the pocket edition on his iPad is no longer enough. I’ve now set up an account for him on my computer and installed the real deal, so that he can play on public servers etc. Just like Ingrid at about the same age.
  • The Mumin books (which Eric is reading for him) and The Brothers Lionheart (which I just finished reading for him).
  • Climbing. Particularly in trees, but other objects – such as large rocks, sacks of earth, etc – also work. He is disappointed that we don’t have more and better climbing trees in the garden.
  • Most foods, except for tomatoes, unless they’re turned into tomato sauce. Well, that and anything sour/sharp, line vinaigrettes and such. Most recent surprise favourite: kohlrabi.
