We went through a night of this recently. You get to feel so murderous. It was a woman who did all the snoring. She was a big lass too. I had to have very stern words with DP or he would have gone and suggested if she ate less we could all get a good night's sleep!
My plan is this: all campers contribute 50p per head and this pays for the snorer to stay in B&B. sorted.
We went camping with some of DHs friends once. One snored so loudly it was hell - I didn't get a wink of sleep. I was v short (although not actually said anything rude) with him the next day. He thought it was funny
We don't camp now. And DH sees that friend without me.
I am glad you restrained your DH, Cooroo. I am a 'big lass' as you term it, and I would not take at all kindly to some bloke making personal and possibly baseless remarks like that to me when there are men of all shapes and sizes all over camp sites acriss the UK (and the world probably) keeping everyone awake every night.
I know it's frustrating, but it's really depressing knowing you have a snorer and feeling so bad about it, sending DH to a B&B would ruin our holiday and my DCs love camping above all other types of holiday. He'd be upset if he read this thread. Earplugs are the way to go.
We just had this too. But at least the snorer is not doing it on purpose. I had far more of a problem with the group across from us who thought drinking and shouting and belching loudly !! late into the night with their small crying, overtired children who really needed to be just put to bed.
Yep - ear plugs definitely the way to go. To be honest, I don't know how people camp without them. Never mind snorers, I couldn't sleep through all the babies crying, late-nighters chatting and singing, early risers talking and shouting at their children...etc etc.
With earplugs, I get a blissful night (more or less) regardless what is happening outside.
Lovecat . What a dreadful note! And how exactly did they expect you to 'stop the fucking snoring'? Other than sew a tennis ball into your pyjamas I guess?
