We have just had a wonderfully full weekend. We spent Friday night camping near my parent’s house. ‘Wild’ camping but with the luxury of being able to run into the house to brush teeth and so on. This was my niece and nephew’s first experience of camping…..little baby L took his mummy off to the house to sleep, maybe next year he’ll be big enough to try the tent. We had such a lovely afternoon and evening. All the bigger children, and Katie intermittently, made a den – complete with a hole for the loo! Leaves made a comfy floor and it was just the right size for anyone aged 10 or under. We had a fire to toast marshmallows, and got through quite a few chocolate digestives in turning them into s’mores.

We did have proper food too…..do you spot the natural gravitation shown by the photos? Boys, playing with sticks and fire and bigger boys holding beers around the fire. Girls sorting out food. I’m sure I could probably try to say something profound but I don’t think I will!

*I think I have finished tinkering with the blog for now. Special thanks to Annie for her very gratefully received tips and help. Amongst other things I had set it too wide for viewing on ipads and other smaller devices. I think it now fits…….but if it doesn’t please do tell me!
