I thought I would share a couple of pictures from our trip before I get down to the serious world of book blogging again.
Here is our tent, which hubby brought for our trip. It was a four man tent and I found it rather roomy. He also put up a gazebo to keep off the rain. However, we were lucky and ended up having a weekend of sunshine. On the Friday morning before we left, there was torrential rain and I nearly called the whole thing off, I am so glad I didn't.
We didn't go camping on our own, we went with thirteen other families. It was organised as a send off for one of our friends who is off to join the front line in Afghanistan for six months. As you might have realised the World Cup had begun and England were playing on Saturday night, so one of our friends decided to take his TV and satellite dish, so that everyone could watch. Not that it was really worth watching as England played really badly and tied with America.
We took over the campsite and there were tables and chairs and toys everywhere. In the evenings we had real log fires going and I am still trying to wash the smell out of everything.
Here is hubby cooking breakfast for the whole family. I was pleased to have a cooking free weekend. I really enjoyed the whole camping experience and I have never spent so much time just chilling out. The kids loved it because there were about 30 different children within the group to play with and we hardly saw them all day.
As you can I am sporting a lovely England wig to show support to our rubbish team. I came back exhausted, but we are busily planning our next camping trip.
