oh oh oh Just got mine 5m standard from belltent. It arrived on friday and all the heavens have hailed down on us all day, so no chance of pitching in the garden yet.
I got the 1/2 inner just to keep the kids in one place. Found a blog where they had dyed the inner red, it looked fantastic, very tempted.
Also want some sort of carpet or rug that wont end up in a heap with 2 kids and dog in/out all day out. NO coir/sea grass stuff it stinks when wet soaks up water and wecks your feet and knees. any ideas?
But but but but a Pyramid IS a bell but with a lovely porch. Bell at the arse end, utilitarian porchy loveliness at the front. I though you, Lucy and me were gonna be the Pyramid massive (small one). We would have been tigh man. TIGHT [tight hand]
If there is talk of the chandelier then, well I don't know what I will think.
Yes yes yes, I've been in millions of bells <wafts hand>, and yes they are lovely but I am a pyramid woman. I like a big old porch. Porch to store your shoes from the syphilitic bastard British weather.
oooh queen pyramid. I like that!! though must confess to a little caravan ownership going on too now.... We are not allowed to put up any extra tents at our farm because of the stupid council, but a caravan within the 'curtalage of the farmhouse' is fine and dandy to shove the kids into of a Friday night while I book in latecomers from London Town... pics are on my profile. Please Slubber dont judge me for the kidstonesque nature of what the previous owners did to it - it WILL be restored to its former original glory. The Betty Boop is going first, it creeps DD out, closely followed by the rather nasty glass objects.....
SalomeD I see you have come over to the dark side too...... haha we will start the pyramid revolution!! have you fitted a stove in yet. I am not sure if I have the guts to do it. may try on the small zilvermeuw first and see how it goes
I think I saw that on ebay - I have an unhealthy compulsion to always be scouring for canvas bargains! It looked fantastic. we have taken the inners out for the glamping at the farm, and its still water tight. shall get some pics today of the new deWaard, its a monster especially with the vario awning....
Think the seller was a bit surprised that 11 minutes after she had posted the advert I had, in a most uncommon act of impulse, hit the [Buy it Now] button & bought it!
She said she was glad it was going to a good home - we're sleeping out again this weekend, just garden camping, not able to go further afield for the bank holiday, but don't mind too much as we're pretty rural here and it's great waking up to the bird song under canvas.
Had toyed on getting a little Outwell for when I go away with just one of the children but couldn't bring myself to buy something that wasn't canvas!
