Today was a butterfly day, with Red Admirals and Peacocks aplenty. There have been so many this year.
Walking to school, Auri and I spotted nine butterflies on a single buddleja bush, with more resting on the stone wall beside.
Somehow, today was Auri’s first day at school. Already.
As I did when Elfi started nursery earlier this month, I spent half the day flinching, thinking I’d misplaced a child somewhere.
Euan and I dropped Auri off in the morning, then went for a very civilised coffee and breakfast pastry in a mildly shell-shocked daze. Later, there was lunch.
