Camping Update

It's Monday morning, the sun is shining. It did rain overnight but the tent seems to have done it's job. Mishka slipped off his anchor point in the night, so was wandering around in his half of the tent, but fortunately he couldn't get to anything important. It's nowhere near as warm today as yesterday, so we're not planning to do anything today, it's a day just to lounge about in the tent, we'll take it in turns to have naps!
So, what have we been upto so far? We arrived at 3pm on Saturday, it took an hour and a half to get unpacked and get the tent up, it's a big tent, needing lots of pegs, and with the forecast for Sunday including thunderstorms, I wanted to be sure I had everything pegged out properly. Dinner was sausages and burgers done on a throwaway bbq, with a nice bottle of wine. Considering our plan was to have early nights, what with no tv to watch and knowing lara will want to get up early, it was still well after 11 when we went to bed. Getting into sleeping bags is not a quiet job, and Lara woke up and had a minor paddy, but after some cuddling and sshing we went back to sleep. She woke again at 3.30am, and this time we didn't waste much time and administered a little calpol and after more sshing she went back to sleep in the travel cot until 6.30, when we brought her down between our sleeping bags. She was so lovely and warm and cosy in her kiddies sleeping bag. I'm going to pause there and send this as the PDA battey is about to give up!
