The nights are getting lighter, so surely it's about time to start seeing what stuff is new and essential this year! Have the bunting and fairy and fairy lights ;o) so what do I need this year?!

Have fun. you certainly will! We will be at the Newbury one in May and I will be drooling over Island Beds (no more climbing over DH to get out of bed in the morning!) grin

That snack stand is utterly hilarious!

I can see how it would fit in on some campsites though...

Milliways Mon 15-Apr-13 19:32:20

Yay, DH is buying me the Lotus Grill as they are now cheaper on Amazon smile

TheFowlAndThePussycat Tue 16-Apr-13 16:52:32

Gah! Don't tell me how much, I don't want to know! [fingers in ears]

Milliways Tue 16-Apr-13 17:32:41

Not much cheaper, but anything cheaper than the shows lets DH feel he has a bargain. It also helps that he wanted to BBQ on Sunday, and I said, OK if you are happy to wait a few hours for your food. That video shows he could have his steak in about 15 mins! Sold!

So now what else can I find at the shows.......

Dd2 and I had a great day at the motorhome show in P'boro - didn't buy any gadgets, only some jumpers! Dd2 left saying, 'we need a campervan to go camping - I don't like the tent any more'.

Glad you enjoyed it.

We have just bought a fab set of nesting Tefal Ingenio saucepans and lids for the van, They are seriously better quality than the ones in my kitchen!

The 99p Stores have collapsible silicone/plastic colanders...for 99p!
And luminous tent pegs, 6 for 99p

I love things that nest. Or collapse.

I pondered those pans in France on holiday a couple of years ago milliway. They seemed very good quality.

Milliways Thu 25-Apr-13 16:21:47

They are, I am very impressed - and they are cheaper in France too as only on Amazon or ebay over here (we phoned Tefal to ask!)

WadsCollop Thu 25-Apr-13 16:29:58

Just to say we have an inflatable sofa bed, is amazingly thick as a bed and good sofa too

Blu Thu 25-Apr-13 16:46:28

I nest, and collapse.

More collapsing than nesting, probably.

Quenelle Thu 25-Apr-13 18:49:06

I'm collapsed right now.

Absolutely roaring with laughter re. the pants!! Might wake DD up, shhhh.

Should really be out enjoying the BH sunshine, but instead I am here coveting a biostove, tsk

TheTragicClam Mon 06-May-13 15:12:03

Also, am seriously considering a she-wee, I bet it feels majestic to piss like a racehorse!

I got a 'jetboil zip' from my Sil this week. (Birthday pressie)

I wasn't even aware of them before I unwrapped it - but now I have one of course it's fantastic ! [ wink ]

Tried it out in the garden, had a steaming cuppa really quick and it's so small and light.

I also really like the snack stand .....

Considering some short legs for my cadac, then I have the option of sticking it on the table rather than its legs ( would then loose the condiment tray and big legs from the pack size ) .

Sorry not sooty shock

I got a wind-up lantern recently, has LEDs and a battery that you charge up by winding the handle. Looks like great idea but haven't used it in RL yet.
