Matty’s Blog – A place in the country
Badger Itchybald Scratchet, (Itchy) to his family and friends are fearful of losing their woodland home in Badger Wood, to Upples (people). Itchy has gone on an adventure to find a new home so they can all live happily.
But where is Itchy and what should Matty (Itchy’s wife) do in the meantime?
Undercover of darkness, Matty travelled many Upple miles with Hurryup, her friend, to Mill Meadow, which came highly recommended by Peter the pheasant postman. He had found it so peaceful with beautiful wooden lodges, hot tubs, and a lake.
The air smelt so lovely and clean and the countryside was softly bathed in late summer sunshine, birds flitted to and fro in the treetops. Matty thought she might be dreaming. She hadn’t realised such a beautiful place existed?
“Wake up Hurryup!” Matty said unable to contain her excitement as she shook her sleepy friend awake. “Peter was right, it’s so beautiful and unspoilt here maybe we can make this our home”.
Hurryup looked around her and could see a lake surrounded by trees, their beautiful autumn leaves reflected in the clear, shimmering water which was full of fish.
Smiling, Hurryup replied, “There’s no rush, let’s have a good look round and see what Mill Meadow has to offer”.
As the sun was going down, Matty and Hurryup went to explore the surroundings.
