all clean again!!




Well we had a really wonderful few days camping...and I have spent the day getting things clean again. It did feel like a mammoth task to get things ready before we went and then unpack and set up tents etc at the other end....but then it felt worth the effort!! We had great weather apart from the one windy day where the tent went for a bit if a fly!!! The camp ground was great as it was not so crowded probably due to its very basic ammenities, however we were able to build a fire each night which was fantastic, especially the marshmallows!! The beach was great and all the kids had a ball swimming, using boogie boards, collecting and building castles and dams. While the seven kids were busily building a small city, all six adults were able to swim in the ocean and compete with each other on the boogie boards catching some pretty big waves. A very relaxing few days!!!

Have just introduced your cousin (who's travelling UK currently but home in 60 hrs time - whow!) to your site - now she's about to show our English cousins all your photo's and stories - intruiging. Suggested they save in favourites on Graham's computer - sure he won't mind!! Glad you had a good time camping - have never been myself - one day maybe! Love to all - your godmother from Berwick.

Love the pics. Did the girls sleep in their own tent?

Regarding the fluffy dice - since the car colour is "vitro" (silver with a touch of green) - I think bright pink would clash quite hideously. And if it's fluffy dice you're after, then clashing is the order of the day.

Welcome back! Glad you had a lovely time - did you come home with sand in EVERYTHING? *lol*
I would love a declutter buddy - it might keep me motivated, which is my main problem. If your up for it, let me know :)
Oh, and you're more than welcome to print that list out, I think I should do that too!

Glad to hear you had fun. I reckon you are such a good sport mother to take 3 kids camping, AND with 2 other families!! I'm very impressed!
