We have anew tent this year, and ds will be 3 and going on his first proper camp trip , only weekends before now.
I have bought, an inflatable sofa, and twinkly solar powered fairy lights. I won't be laughed off the campsite will I. Bc we were fairly hard and didn't bother with such fripperies.

I bought a £1 dustpan and brush in IKEA yesterday to de-crumb our tent.

That counts as sheer luxury in terms of domesticating our camping, I can tell you!

My mum is the Queen of domesticated camping - everyone she goes camping with flocks to her tent.

She has carpet and, I kid you not, actual hanging rails built in to her tent.

Cheese our old childhood tent, a seventies frame with orange and brown swirly curtains had w hanging rail. V civilised.

Op I have battery fairy lights, chinese lantern type battery lights, miles of jolly bunting, a cutlery drawer separator for camping use only, a table perfect for card playing, wind up lamp, oh loads. Unfort am nursing a broken knee, no camping for me this year, booo.

I deliberately went hunting for flat pack vases after my sister sneered at another camper's vase of flowers, and I now keep one permanently in my essentials box with the bin liners, wipes and long matches. [ponce]
