So this little Badger was a gift on my 30th birthday. I’d always referred to Stu as Badger because back when it was fashionable, he had a silly badger stripe in his Hoxton fin.
The milestone of 30 made me want a childish picnic, at which we braved the rain and flew kites with friends. I tied the soft Badger to the kite tails and he flew in the skies of London.
Which is ironic, as after 7 years together, it’s the fear of flying that stopped the real Badger joining me on my move to Australia. One of the Badgers has courage.
