Sometimes getting children to school is what I would think herding cats is like. They know where they are going, but one will run off ahead just as I turn to check behind me. The other is engrossed in a squashed something, or gathering a very interesting stick downed by the last storm to lighten the trees en route. It wouldn’t surprise me to find one ‘cat’ up a tree while the other is chasing a ball of string. They do invariably get to school and I assume into the correct classroom. Which must make me a very successful cat herder.
Once I had delivered the cats to school I hopped off to the gym, then up to the library to collect Wallace and Gromit (World of Invention – can’t wait to watch it!) and to return Lana (Del Ray) and Madonna.
Back to Brentwood on the Metrolink where I took my Hipstamatic Daily photo under the title ‘Inspiration’
Once I found ‘We’ I just couldn’t stop myself! Inspiration in the signs, the deconstructing of the signs or just the Metrolink? I don’t know, but I had a good time even though I looked like a total nutter!
Back in Brentwood I had to go and see the thistles I have been admiring and snapping all Spring. They didn’t disappoint, all purple and blooming and spikey and fabulous!
