Son one has been having driving lessons for the last few weeks, and today was the first time he drove my car with me as the driving chaperone. It was also the first time he has driven a diesel, and the gearing is much much higher than in the little petrol ford he has been driving in with the instructor.

In reality, he is doing really well. Still has a very slight connection between the gear stick and the steering wheel. No really scary moments. Pretty good spatial sense. And I arrived back not stressed out.

So all well on that front.

While we were out this morning getting a replacement L-Plate from Tesco, we saw a dead polecat at the side of the road. For those who know the area this was on the road through Madingley that connects to the A14. It is the first time I have seen a polecat in Cambridgeshire.

Superb weather today. Planes flying overhead in formation. Gaggles of pheasants everywhere. In fact while we were with son 1 practicing his driving we saw both a melanistic dark pheasant and an all white (albino?) pheasant. The joys of autumn.

Current Mood: cheerful

The first polecat recorded in Cambridgeshire since 1905 was only this spring, but not far from Madingley. Hope that wasn't the same one.
