Well, last weekend was not exactly what you would call relaxing - Friday night was marked by the appearance of Santa in the village as he rode around on his sleigh for all the children to see.
We attended the village fete on Saturday afternoon at the Fulford village hall and came home laden with teddies and bottles from the stalls on offer - I think judging by the number of teddy bears at that fete, everyone had had a clear out to make room for Santa.
The Sunday was then the local village walk - a gentle stroll around Fulford and the surrounding countryside - abot 8 people and 5 dogs decided to join in. We made a mottly crew as we donned our Wellies to set off across the fields and paddled through the streams to head for the Sandon Road. We turned back just before the infamous Hunter public house and headed for Saverley Green - across many old rickety styles and bridges (including one bridge which was about 5 feet short of the bank!).
We all waded through the mud (2 of us even got stuck in it), and arrived back in the village after a couple of hours, exhausted, but happy and ready for more (well ready for a relaxing drink at the Shoulder of Mutton).
Bring on the next walk!
