I was in my local shops playing ladies with my friend S, when we suddenly saw a little family also shopping on a Saturday morning.
They had been helped across the highway by a cyclist and were obviously heading for a lake nearby but… someone’s suddenly put this massive shopping centre right in the middle of their route.
Oh well, perhaps mother duck thought she’d check out the makeup
Her children are so well-behaved that they just sit down every time she stops
Whilst this scene is a sign that spring is here, gladdening my heart, it also makes me sad that this little family has such a perilous and tortuous journey from the river to the lake.
I don’t know what became of them; hopefully someone put them in a box and transported them to their new home.
