yes, and getting into clean warm clothes and getting into your own lurvly comfy bed and not haing to zip it up.

oh yes. I had a great time last week in the open air. However now I wouldn't change my nice warm, waterproof(ish) house and more importantly my bed that I can climb up into, for all the fresh air and sunshine in the world. grin

yes and no.

It was lovely to see my loo today (see other thread). I'm missing having a cup of tea outside, looking at welsh hills and watching the dds running about A LOT though.

I've just had a glass of really cold white wine, the children are actually clean, we've had delicious lasagna with a properly crunchy top and garlic bread and salad in a proper salad bowl for tea and I'm going to sleep in a proper bed....

But we're going camping again on Wednesday!

lol, us too, clothes all drying, bath running for me as we speak and then we are off on Friday for festival!

The last time we went camping wsa 2 years ago shock and it rained a fair bit. Looks like the same situation this year.

But I agree, it's alway good to get home.

God yes. It's the only time I (briefly) appreciate my house. I moan about it the rest of the year.

I love my camping with a passion - we had great weather and I could sit outside my tent drinking chilled rose wine by candlelight for ever, watching the bats and listening to the crickets.

It also makes you realise how much water you use at home and how much stuff we have in our houses that we don't actually need.

I did miss Luce though.

We're going to Scotland on Wednesday - too far to abandon if the weather's hideous! Scared to look at the long range forecast.....

So glad to be home! Got back last night and the washing machine hasn't stopped. Feel clean!

just got back from a week on Anglesey.I can't actually see my house...it's covered in a layer of camping things. It pissed down just as we were striking camp.(bastard weather)
Tent is drying behind me as i speak.
Had had enough by yesterday and was looking forward to own bed...but after one night am already looking forward to Snowdonia in 2 weeks

me also noting it down quietly!!!!!!!!!!!!

anniebear Sun 17-Aug-08 19:20:19

does it have a no noise policy after a certain time? thanks

saggyhairyarse Sun 17-Aug-08 19:31:26

I think that was the site I was interested in but we decided Angelsey a bit far so settled on Barmouth. The site we were at was nice enough and the managers were great but, Barmouth, what a depressing dump (sorry if you live/love it there). So we spent an hour or so every day in the car and may as well have gone to Angelsey in the first place!!!

Quiet by 10.30
It was quiet before that though
