No hands!

About to take flight

About to take flight

When we first arrived back from France, in August last, we had a pole made, bolted to a wooden foot which wedges under the sofa, for Clive to try to haul himself up by.

Today he stood up, unaided, and then for the first time took both hands off the pole.

Just to reinforce the point, he put his hands in his pockets!

There’s a long way to go yet – many a step before he’s mobile. But all progress so far has been achieved without any help from the authorities who are still wading through some bureaucratic bog.

The clingy Scarce Swallowtail Butterfly has featured in a blog post before, although not this particular photo. It looks as if it’s just about to take flight.
