So at Christmas Stick Man was on the television. H absolutely didn’t want to watch it because he was too old for it. Us adults decided we’d watch it even if H didn’t fancy it, so why did H keep sneaking glances at the screen; why was there a hidden giggle and a smile; and how was he able to recite huge passages from the book? The answer of course is that he loved every minute of it.
The other day we went to ‘our forest’: the Wyre Forest to try out their new Stick Man trail – click on the link to see which forests are running them. We did a Stick Man trail a few years ago, but they have made this one different. H had now dropped his pretence of finding it all a bit young for him and we set off on the trail.
