I couldn`t be cross

I have a large magnolia tree in my front garden which my kiddies like to climb up, I don`t mind so long as they don`t break any branches off which they know not to. Anyhow I was chatting to my mum outside (she lives two doors down) and said kiddies were in tree, when they both come running over shouting and waving a small branch that they`d broke off image. " mum mum, someones been climbing your tree and spat in it" they shouted innocently. When I looked at the branch it was covered in cuckoo spit!!! bless them they actually thought someone had been spitting in my tree. I did laugh image

    Bless them!  That's a story to save up and embarrass them with when they're grown up!!! image

    Ahh, that's sweet.  Isn't it great when children climb trees (as long as they don't break them!) So many people now jump on the H&S band wagon instead of letting children be children.  My 2 were like monkeys if they saw a tree worth climbing image
