But now Philip added other means of attaining his desire: he began to wish, when he saw a new moon or a dappled horse, and he looked out for shooting stars; during exeat
they had a chicken at the vicarage, and he broke the lucky bone with Aunt Louisa and wished again, each time that his foot might be made whole.
You may ask how he secured almost daily exeats
from our college to win so many races over fences for his brother Toby, a leading trainer.
So I spent all my exeats
with them, went on holidays with them and because of his German wife I began to take an interest in the German language, which I later learnt, so today I'm fluent in German as well-in addition to English, French and my own language of course.
