It's been a busy couple of days, with lots of random acts of wildness.
Yesterday Mum came over to look after the kids while Rob and I skipped off to Ladies Day at Epsom, courtesy of his company.
In between glasses of Pimms, lunch and races, I rescued a beetle from the marquee.
Meanwhile, the kids walked along the canal to the playground, and saw the moorhen chicks (still 4, yay!), and some ducklings.
The caterpillars I ordered arrived yesterday. They're tiny now, just under 1cm. It's fun to watch them grow.
One final wild event yesterday - we saw a bat fly past the window at dusk (quite late, about 10.15pm), and called Betsy and Fred down to see. After a few minutes later it flew past again. Lovely.
Today Betsy had a wild day with Jarvis at Woburn Safari Park. Rob went wild at the allotment, harvesting onions and rhubarb, and weeding *everything*. Meg and I saw lots of bees gathering nectar.
Meg loves the sunlight shining on the canal, says the twinkles of light are diamonds. I got a photo of them today.
