We can't take anymore. DH and I are having a holiday in a lovely cabin. Wood burning stove electric, overlooking a beautiful pond with ducks and moorhens. There is decking area with a barbecue. The kids aren't coming as we want a break.

The cabin is at the end of the garden, but unfortunately out if wifi range, but you can't have everything grin

Oooh photos please grin

If we can't join you in person, at least let us join you virtually.

If we had a garden, our tent would be up. Make the most of your facilities! You're lucky. Good on you for doing the best you can to get through lockdown.

Sounds lovely. I wish we had one.

Sounds like bliss!

I also have a cabin. Sadly it overlooks a fence one way, but a grassy lawn the other. No hearing or lighting. Currently a little bit full. Maybe I could improve it?

Our tent is too big for our garden or we would be camping this weekend!

You can get a TP extender to get your house wifi. smile enjoy the break!

Sounds lovely for as long as the peace lasts!

I took a holiday in my bed this afternoon op. Not quite the same grin

I'm going to sit in the 'big cupboard'. I'm not joking.

Make sure you dont get cabin fever, I think there is some other virus going around at the moment too. But you never seem to read or hear anything about it in the media grin

I am contemplating The Loft, peaceful and removed. Lack of plumbing could prove challenging. Risk benefit analysis underway.

My DH is camping out tonight - in our camper, on our driveway. grin

In fact he just video called me to add to the reality. He's out there on his jonah, I'm indoors on puppy duty.

It's for NHS fund raising actually, some random put it on a camping group on FB to raise £100 and they're up to £35k.

Ooh sounds good, I’m jealous. We have a garden shed I could empty out, no moorhens though. Maybe a pigeon or two. smile

LilacTree1 Sat 04-Apr-20 18:03:27

That sounds amazing.

If I had such a thing, I’d sleep there during heatwaves!

Our holiday abroad (first as a couple since having DC) next week has been cancelled. We're meant to be camping with friends in July. If that doesn't happy, DH has already said we'll put the tent up in our garden - that way at least we'll have half the fun of camping.

Hope you enjoy your break if you get itsmile

DH is missing going to work so much, I suggested we call our garden shed the name of his company and he can go there every morning grin he'd need to fight the cobwebs, broken tables and old toys or else he could name them like Tom Hanks in Castaway

I am hoping to goodness some of the veg seeds survive that I planted especially as dh & I spent our day in the countryside (back garden) digging new veg patches (also useful if I need to dig a 6ft length hole)

I’m going to an 18th Birthday Party tonight!! 👍🏻🍰🍾🥂🎈🎁🛍🎉

Woo hoo

SKYPE I’m not sure it’s exactly what my niece had in mind for her 18th poor kid!

Still she’ll enjoy it in a family way then she can have a good night out with her friends another time

Enjoy your break!!
