A Trip to Remember

Created by Jane in Jane Lawson's Blog

source site go site I generally write about recent events in my life, but my daughter-in-law’s recent school journey with sixty eleven year olds, reminded me of a rather memorable experience nearly forty years ago.


http://wilsonrelocation.com/?q=forex-arab The year was 1974, the school was in Peckham and 30 of the 38  ‘top juniors’ who wanted to go on a school journey to Sandown for which there were just 30 places, had been picked out of the hat. That left eight. And then, the headteacher having one of his bright ideas, suggested that a colleague and myself took the eight on a Youth Hosteling trip to the Peak District ‘because he and I were young and energetic.’

The terrors were very real starting with the tube to St Pancras, continuing with the train, compounded by the trials of manoeuvring a rucksack and reached their peak at the sight of muddy footpaths and sheep alarmingly close to the hostel.

She was sturdily built and was possessed of a voice to match. But sadly, her stamina gave out each day, a couple of miles along the route to the next hostel. She would park her substantial bottom on a stone and announce that she could go no further and every day, her bluff had to be called as the rest of us disappeared over the next hill and waited for a wailing Maureen to catch us up.

Suddenly, there came a scream fit to waken the dead as Maureen reached out to borrow a rubber and tumbled from the top bunk. She declared, between sobs, that she had broken her arm.

Maureen will be in her 40s now. I sometimes wonder if she remembers.
