Where does the centipede hide his shoes? 

We love taking Tilly for long walks and now Spring is here we will be going out more and more. On Monday it was bank holiday and we went for a wander…


First stop was the little patch of woodland near our house where we found this grumpy looking tree! 


Haha looks like me when I catch Flint using our saucepans for bushcraft things! 


Anyway whilst wandering Flint told me about the little shoes hidden in white dead nettles. Yes shoes! 

It’s a story about fairies hiding the centipede’s shoes and how he decided to hide them in white dead nettle so they wouldn’t get them. 


White dead nettle doesn’t sting but the fairies didn’t know that! I found this blog www.tentsandfestivals.co.uk telling the story which is very cute!  I checked it out for myself in the nettles and it’s true!!!
