if you go down to the woods …

If you walk a few hundred yards from where we live and go down to the woods near the River Tame, then you can hear the wolves and risk being chased by them … well you can according to Emma.

Happily though there were no wolves yesterday when Daniel, Emma and I set off for a wander through the woods and did the sort of things that small children should be doing when their out with their Grandad  – pulling faces, clambering up into the woods  (or mountains if you’re Daniel or Emma), swinging from rope swings (some a little more precarious than others), throwing stones in the River, getting a bit muddy and all in all having a good time – and watching out for the wolves of course!

All in all it was a reasonable distance for the children to walk, we did 2.8 miles and had a very decent time of it, the first picture in the gallery below is what it looks like when you believe you have heard a wolf. Click  on any of the pictures to open them.

Then to round off a decent afternoon what on earth can be better than when you get served cheese and onion pie that your Grandma has made and that your Grandad has wrapped in paper. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that are the winners, but I’ll leave the verdict with Daniel who simply said: ” I can’t believe my eyes”
