Hi guy’s well look at me – anyone who knows me will definitely not believe that I have been camping!! Fred has been on at me for years, to get me to go – but I have never given in, partly due to the fact of having to go to the ‘bathroom’ in the middle of the night! I do like my comforts. But one day we happened to be passing our local camping supermarket and we found ourselves inside – the appeal of the enamel crockery was too much and I was beginning to like the idea of it.
Plus the other sunday, we were wondering where to go for the day, when Rosie asked if we could put up our Cath kidston tent, we both looked at Fred, he has been saving this tent for about 2 years now,(he thought if he left it in the wrapping – it would be worth money one day!) it was still in the cellophane in the cupboard and no-one had dare ask, until now!….and to our surprise he said yes…anyway after about an hour the tent was erected (in the Lounge!) and we were all lying inside it including max!..there is something sooo cosy about being inside a tent…something of a new found discovery for me.
Well that was it really – we sorted out the whole house, including the garage and found a multitude of saleable items and sold them at our local bootsale, we raised enough money to buy the tent and some accessories, the rest we took from indoors….and in order to make sure that I really enjoyed myself, Fred bought me a extra high blow up mattress, it was soooo cosy…it was absolutely divine zipping myself up in my pod bedroom, reading all day long…I have decided that I love camping, its so relaxing. We had wind, We had rain, but our tent was absolutely fantastic, tents these days are so clever in design and they have plenty of storage – I said to fred I could do an advert for our Coleman Galileo, We can’t wait to go camping again. I would definitely recommend it! Do check out our pictures….
This is our Father’s Day morning breakfast…How fab is that tent!…and red spots – we love red spots…and theres the fabulous enamel set that we originally bought in the camping shop.
….another view, my pod was in the middle, I have fond memories of curling up with my book! we also had an electric hook-up so I was able to listen to my Roberts radio too!
This is me (sorry about the hair!) I had just washed up! oh and look at that fab granny blanket, Fred went to a ‘too early for me!’ bootsale on the Sunday morning and bought it for £2.50.
This is my beautiful daughter Rosie, who I have yet to introduce you too (she is lovely!) with my favourite Cath Kidston bag!
…another view of the kitchen and freds bed right by the door ( he’s always hot!)…and can you see our lovely eiderdown, we bought that in our favourite shop in Rye…if you have any questions about camping – please do drop me a line, the Campsite we went to was in Whitstable…
