Shiny new eyelets,
fluorescent guy ropes,
sparkling tent pegs
and a bit of spec to boot.
All the signs are there that I have realised my dream and bought myself a tent. It seems that late summer is a good time to find a bargain for such a purchase. My intent is to go camping before the winter sets in.
It was a doddle to put up and is having a good airing in my garden. So what better reading material to peruse than the books I have pored over for the last few years hoping that one day it would all come to fruition.
It gave me a view of the garden that I don't often take notice of - I'm usually looking the other way. I didn't want to come back indoors and spent a lovely few hours relaxing with my sampler and laughing at my daft dog.
It was his birthday yesterday and he had a mahoosive rawhide bone as a special treat. He shares his birthday with No2, who was 15 but adamantly refuses to be photographed. My very own Inbetweener.
Of course, it has necessitated a whole new board for inspiration over on Pinterest!
