If You Go Down to the Woods Today.

 
What’s a chap like Freddie to do on the first sunny day of Spring?

  
     Go scrambling about in Apedale Country Park with Daddy, looking for some adventurous, grubby, boy fun. They went on a ‘bear hunt’ in and out of the trees, scrambled up muddy banks (and one old slag heap – basically an abandoned pile of coal spoil with weeds growing out of it), and slid down them. Freddie had his first Elementary Tree Climbing lesson.

 He had such so much fun that he came home in just his pants – always a benchmark of time well misspent! (his clothes were so muddy Daddy had to strip him off on the muck-mat in the boot of the car).

  

     You know a boy’s had a good day when his bath water looks like oxtail soup!
