THE BADGERS OF FINGLES WOOD GET READY FOR SCHOOL
SCHOOL IS ABOUT TO OPEN
I say the new school is about to
open, but who would believe that even though it was
now the end of February and only three times had
the little ones actually managed to make it to the
Christmas was well over and the New Year brought
with it some very bad frost.It was so cold it
actually froze the old mill stream quiet over, and
as it wasn't very deep it became a fabulous skating
lane, not very wide but well long, it was terrific.
Those that had skates wore them, and those that
didn't, just slid on their bottoms. He, he. That
was most mornings sorted and then in the afternoon
it was up to the Pentre Mawr and the football
pitch, well the hill behind the football pitch
really. The best place for sledging in the whole of
Wales, so Grandfer Thomas used to say, Uncle Cled
told them as he helped the little ones pull their
sleighs back to the top. "Grand days them!" he
spluttered, out of breath at the top of the bank.
"Grandfer Thomas, I have never heard of
Grandfer Thomas before Uncle Cled." Immy said
dragging little Wilhe mena Weasel out of the
"Gerry! Toby! Will you please stop burying
your sister in the snow. It is not very funny!"
Eddy yelled after the vanishing
"Those young weasels are going to
end up causing that young thing some harm one day."
Added Uncle Cled, I think I shall have to talk to
their mother and father. Young Willy goes through a
lot of hasel, I shall be glad when the school
opens." He frowned and shook his head,"What do you
reckon to next Tuesday girls?" Eddy sat on
her sled but didn't go anywhere."What! do you mean
this Tuesday coming, the third?"
"Sounds like a
good day to me, what you think Immy?" She shouted
down the hill. "School to open next Tuesday, gives
us the whole weekend to get it nice and warm! Sound
OK to you?"
"Sounds great to me, I will be glad
to get into a warm class room. It has not got as be
as tiring as this, I'm exhausted Ed, and talk about
being bruised. I think it will be a trip to Auntie
Izzy's after tea to use the hot tub. I have been
bashed, buffered, and bullied by every little one
in the woods." Immy threw herself down on her
sledge, her fur was plastered to her back, with as
much mud, as snow covering it.
"Oh my goodness,
what have you been doing down there? You look like
you have been in a war and lost." Uncle Cled
"I have been, and I think I was the
only one on my side. I am sure those little horrors
were finding the molehills in the snow and I was
pelted with half snow, half mud balls!" she rolled
over in the clean snow, in the hope of removing
some of the mud from her body.
"Come on you two,
let's collect the little horrors and give them back
to the Fingles Wood before it gets dark! So it's
going to be March 3rd then is it. Great. Then it
will be pay back time!" Immy and Eddy smiled at
each other. "Give us five, On the side and with

out on the football pitch. To be easily set upon by
