Tuesday travelling allowed me to see the first brown butterfly... I retraced the two steps that it had taken me to register this springtime herald but she'd fluttered by!
I left behind the warmer weather and Captain Sensible. 13 hours after waking I arrive at my destination. The following day I spend 6 hours lifting impossibly heavy telegraph poles, cut to the required lengths, for my son and almost daughter-in-law. Two of us dragged 33 of these across a tussocky field on a wheelbarrow, then we used a better trolley barrow to bring them to their fenced positions.
