    usually a muddy trek over the meadows and getting the wellies stuck in the mud and getting in a right old mess

  2. May 7, 2016 / 9:22 pm

    Messiest adventure would have to be a trip to the local woods when it had been raining quite a lot. I had one daughter lose a welly in the mud & another fell butt-first into the biggest muddy puddle ever, hubby had to wade in to rescue her. Needless to say baths were needed once we got home & it was a shoes off in the car situation on the way home!

    Our messiest adventure would have to be last year when camping, it was raining for 3 days solid, the ground surrounding the tent was very slippy, my son returned from a toilet trip and was moving too fast and managed to do a forward dive into the mud…he was coated from head to toe!

  5. May 7, 2016 / 10:17 pm

    My mum won a years supply of washing powder when we were younger, but it was those big old boxes she had no clue where to put it all!! I think I could just about cope with 10 pouches 🙂 Love seeing little LP with the pigtails x

    Luckily, Olly hasn’t ever got that messy that we’ve had to strip him off outside the house and hose him down (yet!) When I was about 8 years old, I went on holiday to Devon with my Parents and I fell down a bank into a bog and was completely covered head to toe in foul smelling dirt. My Parents made me strip off outside the caravan and literally did hose me down. I remember it so well as do my parents!

    Has to be a camping trip to the Lake District. We had pretty much rain every day, luckily that was not a problem as we had great fun on muddy treks, splashing in puddles and rain dancing.

  8. May 8, 2016 / 2:54 pm

    Every dog walk when there has been the slightest bit of rain, is a messy adventure. Even when it’s dry, my son ends up in the brook. I had to buy him proper fisherman type waders with wellies welded to the trousers as there is no other way to keep him dry. He has now beaten them by sitting down in a puddle. All was well until he leant backwards and the waders filled up to his chest! I had to strip off my top layers and he walked home wth no shoes on and my jumper as a dress. It’s not the first time. He’s also had to finish a dog walk in his under pants. I NEED THE PERSIL!!!!

    Walked across 3 fields in Ireland to get to the river, as you know Ireland is very rainy so the fields were very wet – this mixed with cows and Wellington boots that liked to get stuck it was a very eventful journey! One I won’t forget in a hurry 🙂

    I can remember my messiest moment (not really an adventure though). I loved Campbell’s Tomato and Rice soup as a child. I can recall spilling some on my pretty dress. As a child I loved to wear a dress. My Mum found it ever so difficult to get the stain out of the white collar of the dress. She said it was one of the most stubborn stains that she had to deal with.

    I do recall making mud pies as a child, as many of us did in those days. Great fun, and Mum knew any mud that got on clothing would clear away “in the wash”. Nowadays children don’t seem to get so messy on a regular basis.

    My Great- Nephew took the opportunity to be adventurous when his Mum fell asleep on the sofa. He used his artistic talents on her pyjamas. Luckily stains came out in the wash, and little one (4year old) informed pyjamas not for that purpose. Family did find the incident funny, though didn’t remind little one of the incident.

    My son has special needs and loves mud!
    When we were out walking in a local forest on new years day, he lay down in the biggest muddiest puddle there was! We were laughing as the smile on his face was a picture!

    People walking past looked gobsmacked but we haven’t cared what other people think for a very long time now! 🙂

    Having an all day & night festival in the park near where I live & the heavens opened & turned the place into a mini Glastonbury.
    It was wild, we were literally sliding through mud & dancing in the rain to the live bands.
    We loved every minute of it 🙂

    One of the woods we visit regularly gets very muddy in winter – so much so we used to make up stories about the Mud Monster which lived in the muddiest places. My daughter even got stuck in the mud once – I lifted her out and my husband retrieved her wellingtons. We were always well splattered with mud when we got back no matter how carefully we walked.

    Attending a British Touring Car Championship meeting at Knockhill many years ago, when the heavens opened and the rain never stopped during the final race of the day. Try as we might, the car park was many miles away, so we could not take refuge quickly, and got completely sodden to the bone. That, coupled with the muddy way underfoot, meant we were not only sopping wet, but a bit mucky by the time we got back to the car and driving home. Happy days! 😉

  69. May 19, 2016 / 4:51 pm

  75. May 22, 2016 / 11:17 pm

    We used to play hide and seek in the woods with the dog, he loved it, even if it was raining. I’m sure he laughed at me if I fell over and got covered in mud. He would then come and shake near me just to make sure I didn’t have a clean bit. Good exercise for us all and it got my daughter running about too.

  76. Patricia Avery

    I took my nephew to the park with my dog. He decided he wanted to play Peppa Pig, jumping in muddy puddles. He then waded into a huge puddle, asking me to join him. I only had trainers on and told him I couldn’t, so he proceeded to drag me in. I slipped and fell over, dragged him down with me and then to top it off the dog came barrelling in after us. Needless to say we went home in the car with only our jumpers and pants on, and I had to spend the rest of the day cleaning the car.

    I’ve definitely reached a certain age – my first thought to this prize was ‘a dream come true’! xD My own messiest adventure is probably falling in the local canal when I was a kid. Canals aren’t generally known for their cleanliness, and it was rainy and muddy anyway. Yuk! x

  85. May 27, 2016 / 6:00 pm

    On our walks when it’s been raining and Noah just had to dive into the biggest and deepest puddle, even without his wellies on!

    I went caving (with a caving club) and they picked a grim cave that had a sewage waterfall running through every drop that we had to climb through. Then we wriggled through sewage passages for two miles.

    At the end of the day we emerged tired and covered in mud (or probably something else).

    I would have needed a years supply of Persil for one set of clothes!

    My daughter went with her class for the kayak riding and other water and muddy activities in a water resort. When she came back she was covered top to toe with slimy and smelly water plants and mud too. It turned out she fell in to the canal while they riding the boat and when she came out she slipped and fell in the muddy bank again. It was a hard day to get rid of all those stinky stuff but we were laughing like mad people that day.

    When I took my granddog, Rafa, for a walk, he decided to have a swim in the little river that runs through our woods. However, when it was time to go, he couldn’t get up the bank and he struggled so much that I had to get in and haul him out. We were both very wet and muddy after that!

    We went to our local forest area, and for some reason we decided to cross over the stream, but in order to get to the stream, we had to go down this muddy hill. Everybody made it across no problem, but then it was my turn! I fell and slid all the way down to the bottom! To top it all off, I was wearing white jeans. Let’s just say, they had to go in the bin as they were completely ruined!

    We were at wicksteed park in Kettering and my young son wanted his photo taken in one of those wooden things where the child can put their head in place of a cartoon character, a clown in this instance but he got so excited he tumbled off into a muddy puddle and was plastered with mud head to foot!

    In my days as a student I went on a pub crawl out in the peak district with a few friends, and it ended up quite a drunken event! Me and one of my mates tried to walk home and took a shortcut through this field (it seemed a good idea at the time!) It had been raining and we ended up trying to climb this muddy hill, but being worse for wear we kept sliding back down in the mud…We were an absolute state by the time we reached home – his girlfriend ended up turning the hose on us, it was freezing!

    Happened the other year when me and my friend went horse riding and she was telling me how much Star (her horse) loved splashing about in the sea. Erm, Star decided that day the sea was too cold, refused to go in and deposited my friend in the sea. Not only that, when she got back to the stables she slipped in the muck heap and not only was she wet through, she was also covered in horse manure.

    My kids played out in the back garden not long after we moved in and it had recently rained. They had fun, but I thought there was a tribe of mud monsters on my doorstep when they had finished! They had to take everything off at the back door and run to the bathroom for a hot bath! Thank goodness for washing machines! Since then we took steps to improve the drainage and there is now patio so no more mud monsters any more!

    When our son had conquered walking we decided we would buy him some wellies and we would go on a muddy country walk as a family. Long story short, his boots got stuck, my boots got stuck and my husbands boots got stuck. Our socks were left in the very sticky mud and we had to baby wipe our feet before we put them back into our rescued boots! It was a very messy adventure but one we will never forget! xx

    That would be the bottle of Juice, that must have fermented, exploding in my car last week. It went off like a bomb & both the inside of the car & me were covered. Despite two hours work on the inside of my car, I’m still finding “bits” and the smell????
