First Conker

It started out like this.

Then ended up like this.

I thought they broke open. This one did it all by itself. Ahh!


  1. I was only mentioning conkers yesterday. Apparently, putting them on the windowsill discourages spiders from coming in the house. I don't know how true it is, but we've had some whoppers in our house just lately, coming in from the cold I suspect, so I might have to give it a go.

  2. Ah such memories. Some years ago we took our girls conkering, i.e., getting them off the trees which involved throwing a stick up into the tree. To bring the conkers down. I ended up with a split head, dont heads bleed! Made a change for me going to casualty instead of the girls. Who I hasten to add fell off bikes frequently and out of trees, nothing sinister.

  3. Mum you really need to get rid of this word verification its taken me four gos!

    1. Your wish is my command (hopefully).

  4. that does indeed bring back super memories. We used to put ours in the oven to harden them up. Then I remember something about vinegar?



Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
