There is so much Nostalgia in returning to the small English village of Braunston in Rutland, where i spent the best days of my childhood. So many memories still remain with me of all the seemingly long happy days there.

Playing Pooh sticks on the bridge, bringing the cows in from the fields to be milked, running freely across the surrounding fields and down to the river.

I managed to return there in January this year and walk around. We had a quick game of Pooh sticks, looked round the church and signed the guest book, after which we walked slowly through the village to the large Victorian house we used to live in.

Our luck was with us as the lovely lady who now owns the house invited us in to look around. Yes, there had been many alterations but there were also many things that hadn’t changed. All the memories came flooding back as i described to her how the house used to be, and also remembered the fun times we had as children living there.

On entering the kitchen i was amazed to see the very same Aga cooker that used to keep me warm during the winter months whilst doing my homework all those years ago.
