A Good Idea ?
We went away camping last week.
If you have been reading my blog over the last year you will remember my reluctance to participate in this crazy English obsession.
It is not that I dislike the idea of sleeping under canvas or alfresco eating. In fact the idea rather appeals.
It is just that I think it is only the English who would persist when the heavens open , to huddle together in a field , under a thin piece of material with only an open flame to cook on , with crazy children for company, fighting in a confined space.
It is just so weather dependant.
And in England the weather is NOT that dependable.
However, this year we had Sun, Sun, Sun and it was the best holiday we have had for a long time.
I am still overrun with washing, in a house devastated by building works , but we had time to reconnect as a family and spend time together, just being.
The kids relaxed and we found that the tensions fell off them too and they were good to be around again - I suspect this had something greatly to do with the fact that we were relaxed with them .
The camping was basic.
The children are not that clean.
I relied greatly on dry shampoo and hairbands.
BUT...we returned home, tired, dirty, refreshed and ready for the next chapter.......
