I know that we are not in Ashdown Forest but when you see a bridge like this what is the first thing that comes into your head..................Pooh Sticks!! Surely it would be rude not to play!
The boys hadn't played before, (although I did take Monty to the real Pooh Bridge in Hartfield when he was little - he has no memory of it though). We gathered our sticks and we were ready.
The boys loved it, all that running, throwing and of course the anticipation of whose stick will come through first. Such a wonderful game.
We then thought that we should all go in for a paddle. The water was freezing but it was great fun splashing about, even Sophia joined in the fun.
