Day 26: Thursday, 24th December 2020

St Mary’s Church, Chalgrove

At last, we’re here! There’s an inn, with a manger for the baby, who feels as though he is on his way. It has been a long journey, and we’re both tired, and excited. Look! There are shepherds coming in the distance . . .

Day 22: Sunday, 20th December 2020

Fairfax Road

We had a lovely evening with the Joslyn’s. They put us up in their caravan, running water, electricity all layed on. I had a lovely shower – although I barely fitted in the cubicle! Donkey was a bit perturbed by their scatty Springer Spaniel, but after he ran rings round Donkey for a bit they settled down in the awning together.  We had a hearty meal of sausage casserole and jacket potato, just right after a long journey


Day 21: Saturday, 19th December 2020

Church Lane and Argosy Close

Mary and Joseph had planned to spend the night in 2 different houses in Argosy Close. Unfortunately there was an unexpected hitch, as there can be with travel plans, so they spent the first part of the night at Church Lane before ending up at Argosy Close.

Church Lane:

A restful night had by all, the playful puppy kept things entertaining.

Then arriving at Argosy Close:

I was delighted to find that our hostess used to be a midwife.  I am very apprehensive about the birth and being away from home, but she answered all our questions and gave us some useful tips.

Our host made us a massive full English breakfast  –Donkey was a bit suspicious of the black pudding! But we enjoyed it.

Monument Road

Tonight we stayed at the cub leaders house on monument road we were given a tent for the night and an amazing campfire, we had marshmallow what a campfire treat. Donkey curled up beside the fire which kept us warm all night.

Sixpenny Lane

We had an interesting stay in Sixpenny Lane with three rats to make friends with. Donkey was rather scared of them at first until he realised they were really friendly and wanted to climb up and sit on his back. The two rabbits were happy to share their hay so donkey was well fed. The only problem was we didn’t sleep that well because of the teenagers who seemed to be up all night.  Hoping the baby sleeps more than they do when it arrives! 

Day 18: Wednesday, 16th December 2020

Sixpenny Lane

We had a reasonable night. The room was as expected: clean and comfortable. The giant black cat barging in at 4am was not expected and nearly scared us to death. Turns out he was not a wild panther, just a normal cat looking for breakfast. Speaking of which, breakfast was excellent and we were given a packed lunch to take with us for the next stage.

Day 17: Tuesday, 15th December 2020

Sixpenny Lane

Donkey really enjoyed staying in this shed. She had a bit of a nose around but then found a comfortable spot right next to the wheelbarrow. We enjoyed watching the stars. It feels like something very exciting is going to happen soon.
