This Week

This week’s been pretty good. Busy, but good. Far more people than I’d expected liked what I had to say on here on Tuesday – thanks so much for all the lovely comments and shares. It’s cool to be able to help.

On Tuesday I taught, as usual. But before the usual writing class I held the first after school writing group for children. And it was an awful lot of fun and reminded me, again, how much I’ve missed working with children. It’s good. And they’re a really good bunch, which helps a lot.

Between sessions, as I disappeared for some fresh air, I thought I’d discovered a hummingbird. In Cheshire. It was this little chap, and it turns out that it wasn’t, in fax, a hummingbird (which is a shame – I could have been famous) but a hummingbird moth. It’s one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time. (There’s a video, in case you’re interested, over on my Facebook page but it’s too big for here.)


And yesterday, I baked. Not done that in a few months but a good cause in the Macmillan Coffee Morning brought me out of my baking semi-retirement.

Here’s proof.


And here’s the result.

    Hummingbird moths are fab. I also had one in the garden this year, after not having seen one for several years. Mild winter/long summer maybe? Cakes also look fab. I’ll be round in five 🙂

    A man who makes his own muffins! Impressed. I’ve never seen a hummingbird noth – that’s about the most special little (big!) bug I’ve ever seen. : -)
