Would taking courgettes and thyme be a step too far??

Sound yummy.Fry in butter on your camping stove.Add black pepper and a few sprigs thyme.Or you could make ratatouille if you add some tinned tom,garlic and stuff.

lol Giggle, I am biased have just been camping and spent a few moments judging assessing campers from mn pov.

For instance.

Camping - The one place where wandering around in your jimjams outside in da hood is acceptable.

But apparently wearing heels is not wise.

<sigh> yy the aubergine was a step too far non? I felt the eyes of judgement upon me, I wanted to yell but look at sensible walking shoes I have don't judge me!

But instead I jutted my chin and played with my thyme

watching campers from MN p.o.v - intriguing, pray tell more!

surely the pissing in a bush is a requirement as part of regulatory joke akin to bears and woods or popes and catholism...

Do campers wee in bushes?

No, of course not they use prescribed faciities at all hours in all weathers.

BoysAreLikeDogs Sat 02-Aug-08 00:11:06

har har at sensible shoes

yes, what else did you observe?

GW why are you you paranoid?

C'mon Slur, dish that dirt

Camping is funny.

It is lifestyles on display and also amusing priorites yes?

So great combo. grin

We had 4 different neighbours while we stayed. The quiet ones, the walkers, the families.

We saw only one lot with a portable tv, everyone had lurverly big portable armchairs, a thankfully stylefree styleless zone where only the teens had straightened hair.

S1ur Sat 02-Aug-08 00:21:09

oooh dirt, I'm sure any we saw was tame. I suspect (and hope) that others will dish faaar better.

But in the bathroom I did find... eyelash curlers

BoysAreLikeDogs Sat 02-Aug-08 00:21:30

Roffling at the teens with their straightened hair.

Did I ever tell the story of camping on the Gower years ago ??

When the toilet fell off the wall and I was chased by someone else's massive turd out of the toilet block??

yy be paranoid giggle grin If you've ever thought to look in someone's shopping basket while shopping just think what they thought of your bed hair shock and double shock your in tent conversations that you thought were private

gigglewitch Sat 02-Aug-08 00:31:15

I have an er, um, acquaintance (can't call her friend) <shallow> who turned up on a field with no facilities with her hairdryer hmm and wanted to pitch her tent at the bottom of the hill shock. It rained and the said tent became a boat. Possibly her last camping trip?

The 'loud parenting' brigade.. The ones who ponce off reporting every event in their childrens life.
They are 10 times worse in a field.
