• Olympic Camping

    Camping, oh how I love thee. Oh how I hate thee. Forgetting the Olympic opening ceremony was on, we accepted a lovely invitation to go Camping with a group of really good friends.  Our 5.5mile tramp, skirting beautiful lakes.. Our home for the weekend, sleeping under the Stars (a 101 in 1001 goal!) It was cosy, very very cosy and one of the harder things about Camping – like our friend said when he… View Post

    Party breakfast

This morning the clan all arose at about 10 (by clan I also include the cat, though she got up, stretched and went back to sleep…), we fixed ourselves some breakfast and began to plan for the day.
