We walked back to Metheringham and as both our mum’s worked locally we had to avoid being spotted so we took shelter in an outbuilding at the Londesborough Arms Pub. Then to my dismay who should pass by but my mum’s friend who said “What are you doing here?” I asked her not to tell my mum and to this day she never did.
We then walked up to my friend’s house just before the school bus arrived back in the village and as her mum was still at work and put the kettle on for a drink. Thinking we had well got away with the day off. When her mum came home she clocked on to what we had done as the kettle was still hot.
What a long day that was….
