About 25 years ago, when we were renovating our house, my husband John carved a dragon to put on the roof. This was a long time before I even started thinking about writing about dragons. The dragon has watched over us ever since.
John is painting the outside of the house at the moment and he had a close look at the dragon for the first time in a while. The dragon needed some serious attention to stop him rotting away entirely but hopefully he’ll be up there watching over us for a lot longer yet.
