A shiny night…

Early up today, and light pouring in through the bathroom windows. Go downstairs to let all the cats in; a rush of dark shapes in the moonlight surging across the lawn and leaping up to the opened conservatory window. It being the last of the three nights of full, the moon was high in the sky an hour or so before dawn, casting good grey light. Drive to work with it hanging pale and blueish in the sky ahead of me; then tonight, on the last mile, just after moonrise, now obviously gibbous and yellow on the horizon.

An exhausting first week back at work now behind me, but little scope for rest this weekend.
