Camping

Cor, it's definitely the end of warm days isn't it - and to prove it we went camping. Yep, beginning of October and we pack up and head to a Forrest to live rough for a couple of days - ????

Actually the first night was really, mighty painful. I woke up with head freeze, and decided I wasn't tough, I was a girly girl and was going home........then I spotted my unopened bottle of mulled wine - mmmmmmm wine warmed on an open fire.

That was me, I stuck it out the Saturday night as well, and had a lovely time. Nicky and I went with Kathryn and Andrew, and stayed in Kathryn's dad's Forrest. How wonderful, it has deer and a bird hide where we sat and pondered whilst watching beautiful birds and a cheeky squirrel. We had a constant roaring fire, food, good company and plenty of trees.

It was a lovely weekend, and spooky enough, I managed to sleep for 10 hours on Saturday night (maybe that was the mulled wine - didn't even notice my air bed deflating).

Kathryn and me - wrapped up and looking good!

Hi Leonie! You deserve a medal for camping in October! I love camping, but definitely only in the summer months! Great photos, looks like you had fun!
love Alison xx

haha, it does look like our bums are on fire doesn't it! Trust me they weren't, quite the opposite! The first night I would have needed a very large bottle of brandy then whisky to knock me out!! The second night it was just the one bottle - honest guvner.
