My children have some great toys so I feel a mixture of delight and slight irritation when they abandon them all for sticks.
No trip to a woodland, romp round a stately home, or quick pee in a layby is complete for my children without harvesting a stick. Gun-shaped sticks are among the most prized, although fights regularly break out over a good “staff”.
I am totally without scruples when it comes to disposing of them – however a 2 minute run round my house revealed the booty shown in the photograph. Yes. The sticks are winning.
You cannot beat a stick
They CANNOT beat a stick.
In every single nook.
I’m losing, let’s be honest.
I’d own a stick plantation.
Is ANYTHING more fun?
You cannot beat a stick!
