Blowing away the cobwebs

There is a spot near us on the North Wessex Downs where the wind whips across the top of the hills, sending trees swaying and children bent over as they battle against it to reach the top.

Another Wet Weekend

Last year, August Bank Holiday weekend was so wet that we decided to embrace the torrential rain and have fun in the mud and puddles.
