|which way round for luck?|
This morning Rick took us up past Monsieur Hichard’s farmhouse, past the teacher’s house and up into the chestnut woods overlooking our hamlet. Our new walking boots felt very comfortable. The first thing we found was a shiny horse shoe, I think it had only recently been thrown. I picked it up and brought it home to hang on the barn door, they are supposed to bring you luck aren’t they?
Then I noticed the spotted woodland slug feasting on a mushroom. It reminded me of the hookah smoking caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland. There were mushrooms everywhere. I gathered a few that looked edible to take home, I shall check with Philippe to see if they are okay to eat.
