Within seconds of leaving the house this morning, daddy found a vacated bird’s egg to show Luke.
It’s just as well the bird had already hatched as, although intrigued by the object, Luke obviously doesn’t yet have the sure hands ready to take on the England cricket captaincy.
Our morning children’s group seemed to be getting in on the #30DaysWild action with a display of plastic bugs and magnifiers to explore at the beginning of the session.
And our walk home in the lovely sunshine provided further chance to enjoy some natural scenery.
Whilst I am still determined to regain my confidence in driving, I’m also grateful (most of the time) that I get to do as much walking as I do.
In the attempt to find short cuts and cut journey times – especially as it can sometimes take as long to leave the house as to walk anywhere – finding our way to and from places via pathways rather than down the side of roads often means calmer journeys in fresher air where we can hear more birdsong and less traffic noise.
And there’s almost always sticks to collect too!
