|Spindle Berries...Who Knew?|
Oh how Goddess must have been laughing..... One frantic phone call later from a dear friend who having been let down at the last minute desperately needed a babysitter on Saturday and I had acquired the wonderful James, a fabulous and very lively 10 year old lad for the night. The rain deterred us from a moonlit walk through the fields with torches to look for bats (we're mad not crazy you know!) However we did get to finish decorating pumpkins and trial my new glass paints out decorating glass jars as tea light holders as well as a passing cat before watching a film.

|A Goddess Welcome|
The park I had seen on the way home last week was on top of the North Downs so we eagerly explored the park greeted by a curiously Goddess like wood sculpture. We found all the berries I had seen previously and more, we now know what spindle berries look like (I've never heard of them!) as well as finding redcurrants, blackcurrants and more rose hips than even I could 'glean'. At the peak of the hill we found the site of an Iron Age enclosure and learnt that far from being a hill top fort to protect themselves from marauding bands of ferocious enemies, these were the arable and cultivated farming
