A very tired and bedraggled Zoe has returned from a 48 km. hike with her friends in the Forest of Dean. Well, it was meant to 48 km, but longer as they got lost. The Duke of Edinburgh expedition!
At times, all 7 of them, 15 year old girls, sat in a circle and cried because they were so lost, so tired, and so fed up of almost everyone else.
In retrospect, these times are reckoned a bonding experience!
Amusing, Zoe skipped into my room singing, “Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burning,” but after a few minutes of animation, limped out, and crashed!
