In Reading Week (which is a week dedicated not to essay writing but loosing your sleep pattern, being very poor, very cold, watching too much Planet Earth and splitting bottles of Gordon's Gin over three days) we are going to Richmond Park on an Excursion. I am making a winter picnic and we are going to see some Fallow Deer.
Richmond Park is three times as big as Central Park, and also holds the Royal Ballet School (where Billy Elliot ends up). We used to go every weekend when I was young and it's the coolest place in the world. The gamekeepers make dens for you to find out of fallen trees, and you get to see stags rut and climb trees and generally feel how kids are supposed to feel.
