Up the road or down, sometimes further afield, often not for long, we're out most days.
What are conkers, Lucy?:)
Horse chestnuts, the shiny ones that fall with the leaves at this time. English kids play a game with them, hanging them on strings and hitting them against one another. As far as I can gather French kids, and presumabley American, don't play this, they just collect them for their beauty. They lose their shine quickly, of course, and you are left with a pile of dull conkers, but these are sometimes planted in pots to show how things grow...
