Camping is...

You know when you put your blogs down the side of the thing and the Internet magically updates the titles? So all you have to do to get everyone's latest posts is to click on the side of the thing? And everyone gets to see that you do honestly read them too?

Well, when I got in there from my SECOND night out without any strawberries this week, I read down through the list of latest posts:

Camping is = Crabapple jelly, sorting sheep, and the perfect summer's day.

Now I can honestly say that none of these things would appear in my definition of camping. Which is relevant here tonight because as I got in from my SECOND night out without any strawberries this week PC was googling away on the search for some suitable accomodation for the week he is taking off soon, and unimpressed by results he said, "We could just go camping?"

This is fine. I love camping. We did say that we were taking a little break this summer. But camping is fine. There's just never an absolute guarantee that in the frozen North there will be crabapple jelly, sorting sheep or even the perfect summer's day....

(Still no pictures here in Strawberry Land, so no shots of glamping or even google snatches of The Guard- both of which I would most highly recommend!)

Camping sounds fun. Sort of. Isn't it a lot of work for the mother?

Camping is fun when the weather is fine but when it rains it is not.

Just got back from a trip 6 lovely daya but had to pack up in the wet :(

G'day. Sadly, hubby is not a camper in the true sense of the word. But I just love it, needless to say our tent was given away some time ago after a trip where the weather was bad and hubby lost patience etc, etc,. Oh well, that's the way it goes. Take care. Liz...

I've never done 'that thing down the side' - I confess I thought the blognames popped up automatically whether or not you read them!
You have no idea how grateful I am that I spend my holidays under a solid roof, with a proper loo, and an accessible kettle and teapot these days.
We have never had a camping holiday where it did NOT rain. LOTS.
I LOVED Pompoms comment. Answer YES

but glad you are home safe now in warm place with working PC.
