Last week I started to go through the National Trust's list of "50 things to do before you are 11¾" because Tom has now reached the great age of 12. Here's the next set to see whether he can better his score so far of 9/13.
14. Make a mud pie - Oh yes and all too often with an ensuing mud fight as happened with these friends who were in the gite! You really did NOT want o see the bath after these 4 horrors had been in it!
15. Dam a stream - we have a little local stream and the boys regularly dam it. All I can say is thank goodness it's not a big enough stream to then flood the farmer's fields!
