This week three of my lovely lads had birthdays – Rob 30, Harry 3 and Reuben 3. We went to Savernake Forest to explore and enjoy a picnic. What a wonderful day – the sun shone and the rain held off until we were ready to leave. There was much excitement when Summer spotted a black beetle and Stephen was brave enough to pick it up and pass it around the children. They thought it was fantastic and all gently allowed it to walk on their hands. The bemused beetle was safely returned to the margins, just off the path.
