The long shadows of ‘late’ afternoon. (Though late is a pretty relative thing now that the clocks have gone back. It ┬ábegan around 3.30!) The last triumphant rays of sunlight cast a golden light on Eileen’s refreshed paintwork as we pass under Bridge 172 heading towards the disruption of the M40.

That’ll be me and Claire then, one of those lets hold the camera out and see what happens shots. I’m steering, and Claire’s still keeping a weather-eye on three wriggling, noisy kids – honest!

On the long curving level between the M40 and Nell’s Bridge, Fin points out birds and animals moving in twilight. It’s all such an adventure for a small city boy. I’m happy he’s experiencing it.
