After-school Adventures!

Friday, the perfect opportunity for a quick walk. My brother was at a football club and my sister was at her freind’s house there would be no moaning whatsoever! (Hopefully). ๐Ÿ˜

We decided to go to a field we had recently discovered to be a chickorita nest. ( If you are familiar with Pokรฉmon go you will know what I’m talking about ๐Ÿ˜‰). Without  even taking off my school-bag we began our adventure after school.

Well, as you all should know, no-one blogs about something where nothing absolutely hilarious happens. On the way to our chickorita nest there was a train track crossing over the road; right as we were about to cross a freight-train came past. 

Just as the freight-train was about to get out of our way, it stopped.๐Ÿ˜ค About five minutes later another freight-train came past.๐Ÿ™„


At least we got what we came for.๐Ÿ˜‹

School e-newsletter

First of all, I am extremely sorry that I have not ย written any blogs for ages; I simply have not had anything to write about. (Naah, I’m lying, I have spent a lot of time playing Pokรฉmon go.)๐Ÿ˜

This blog post is about me sharing my achievement of being selected to be part of the new school E-newsletter team! (I didn’t know this at first but apparently my brother is on the team as well.๐Ÿ™„)

The main reason I was selected was because my teacher knows I have this blog. Hurray!๐Ÿ˜„

E-lumination!

Hurray!  Half term is here! ( Or was here. By the time this post has been completed and published half term will have been over for a while…โ˜น๏ธ) I decided the perfect subject to write about would be the E-luminate festival which took place in Cambridge

The main lightshow took place upon the Senate house which blew me away! There was also a few other lights that we walked past. 

Though it is quite hard to enjoy the show when the alarm in the ‘Cambridge satchel company‘ is going off on and on and on.๐Ÿ™„

Then, we strolled down to the river for the final sight of the night.

Pillboxes, Pubs and… Pellets!

Saturday afternoon, no school and a perfect chance to go have some fun! With Dad arriving earlier than usual from work we decided it was the perfect opportunity to pick up a puzzle cache that Mum had recently solved. We went to somewhere I’m not allowed to say because it will give away the answer.๐Ÿ˜‰

After the cache was successfully located we spotted a pub across the road and decided it was the perfect time for lunch. Pit stop!

We remembered a trail that we once did alongside the river. Thankfully, no one fell in but Dad was tempted to go swimming a few times. Luckily,Mum managed to talk him out of it. Further along the path, a bridge was standing over a ditch. I spotted an owl pellet sitting on the handrail. All was good until Dad came in with his Swiss Army knife…

Eww.

Geocaching road trip!

An opportunity to go out caching with just my Mum doesn’t come around very often. We decided to clean up some random caches within the ten mile radius of our home.

There was also a quick maintenance job we had to do on the way. The only problem was Mum was not tall enough to reach up to where the cache was meant to be. It was only a matter of time before I was up on Mum’s shoulders, reaching up to put the cache back.

Then we continued with the ‘trail’ of caches that made Mum groan. Especially when she couldn’t get the log out. She really should take tweezers…

Big puddle, little cache.

There just might have been a few navigational issues. Whoops! Well, I was distracted eating my biscuits.

I did manage to get Mum to stop the car and made up for things by finding this sneaky cache though.

We thought this church micro cache would be much trickier than it was.


Then we celebrated with a snap chat selfie. ย I think Mum is going to kill me…

Puddle skating?!

On a bitterly cold Sunday morning really the last thing you want to do is leave the comfort of your sofa. Unfortunately for me, Mum had other ideas…

She decided we should do the geocaching Not So Fishy trail which is a 23 cache long walk from Tuddenham to Herringswell and then back round to Tuddenham. Why me?๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜‰

We started the walk with me bundled up in all kinds of outdoors gear. Then I remembered you can not play pokรจmon go with gloves on. So I resolved to start a new fashion trend of wearing one glove and having to put up with the cold.

A few metres down the path Dad spotted a rather large patch of ice and started sprinting towards it. I followed him through the field as he began carefully treading on the ice until he hurtled himself onto it and unbelievably, it didn’t crack. But that was only the start.

Further along the path I stepped through what seemed like a portal to another world. I clambered through a bush and crawled down a rather muddy slope landing in a pile of orange,crispy leaves.

In the corner of my eye I spotted a low hanging branch and well… You can guess what happened next.๐Ÿ˜‰

Umm…


Eventually, we moved along the path and saw more frozen puddles and decided to go ‘skating’. It went well at first but then…

I’ve always been told that when ice cracks it’s ok but when it bends you should run. Unfortunately, that didn’t quite work for me. While I was sliding around my little brother decided it was a good idea to crack all the ice around me.           That ended with me having two very wet feet to walk home with .๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Introducing…

img_0022Hello everybody and welcome to my blog!

My name is Fraz and I’m 10 years old.

I like reading, geocaching, climbing trees and having adventures.

Being the daughter of the Mud and Nettles blog Author I was inspired to write my own blog. Having proofread many posts I have a rough idea of what’s going on. If you hadn’t guessed already this blog will be about our adventures from taking dog walks to exploring caves with only torches and our sense of adventure to guide us.(Yep,that’s happened before.๐Ÿ˜‰)
