I did go and spend Christmas with my little friend Lucy (branch 6) in Cambridge.

She took me to see some animals at Wimpole Hall Farm and I did fall in the mud.

Then there were some Clovelly donkeys. I hope they weren’t laughing at me.

Lucy kindly lent me a nappy bag so I could travel home without getting mud all over the pockets of me 3 x great grandson Christopher.

I did have to hope that I didn’t get thrown out with the nappies though.
