Where : Wendover Woods

Wendover WoodsOn a cold but mild November lunchtime, I set out with Catherine and Louisa for a picnic in Wendover Woods. It got us out of the house, blew the cobwebs away, gave us some much-needed exercise and most importantly of all, was fun.

Louisa found a huge tree-stump to climb on, despite the top being slippery with moss (it was actually ogre-snot)!

In the car-park we found these two cars, look closely at the number plates, it’s really very sweet.

We walked to the clearing where there are picnic tables and there, in the cold and rapidly rapidly increasing wind, set out our picnic of bread and cheeses, tomatoes and apples.

During my picnic, I was joined by a wandering and lowly Latvian peasant woman, whose village had obviously been bombed, driving her out into the woods. She envied my picnic.

As I generously offered her a whole slice of well-buttered bread, a starving orphan child tried to get in on the act, but despite her pleas, she was getting nothing from me.

We braved the elements for the duration of the picnic, but eventually took shelter in the Cafe In The Woods for a round of hot chocolate and coffees.

Louisa of course needed, to play and so she set off to the play area, swinging from monkey bars and constructing dodgy looking buildings from piles of branches.

Finally just before we left, I found what I wanted for lunch, although Catherine talked me out of it.
