And so the night-time commutes begin. Lupine, 2 x rear lights (lesson learnt), reflective stuff all over everything, mudguards and twice as much food as I'd usually take (it's dark, therefore it's cold, therefore more cake, right?), and out over the Downs for a long-way-home to remember. Clouds of kamikaze moths, curious bats doing fly-bys, badgers, deer, glorious sunsets, spooky trees and flickering probably-nothing-but-could-be-anything shadows playing mind games.... First of many. Hurry up autumn, you're overdue.
