What a lovely week it's been, lots of family time and lots of that glorious yellow thing in the sky, otherwise known as the sun. Luckily Milo's spots really cleared up in time for us to go camping on Monday , I think that was down to loads of calamine cream and bicarb baths ( thank you so much for the suggestions guys ). Neither Gabe or I have showed any spot signs yet but there is still time !!.
So where was I , oh yes , camping. We found a campsite called Park Foot right on the edge of Ullswater.
This was our little home for a few days, can you imagine what it was like opening the tent flaps on a morning and having this as your view
the scenery was fantastic
To our right was the lake
the boats bobbed up and down
and stones were thrown
The boys of all ages absolutely loved it,
It's a good job we took lots of different types of balls
and plenty of tickles...
Now can you see all that green space in front of our tent? Well, a motorhome came and parked right next to us. Don't get me wrong I love motorhomes but their generators are soooooo noisy. Next time we will camp where there are just tents as the constant droning really started to wind me up and started to spoil it.
The sunsets were awesome and the night sky was so clear, I don't think I;ve ever seen so many stars and constellations . But the nights were also absolutely freezing. I ended up sleeping fully clothed in my sleeping bag and can you believe we forgot to pack long sleeved clothes , for any of us !!!!
Gabe didn't have a problem sleeping,
even if it wasn't on his bed... on the first night he must have had an upset tummy and his nappy leaked , let's just say it was a very good job the site had a launderette , YUK.
We will be going camping again, but we will remember , long sleeved clothes , a tin opener , black bags and more blankets . I think camping is all a bit of a learning process and you either love it or loathe it. The boys would do it again in a flash , me , well I'm a bit on the fence at the moment..
I found out later that Lucy from Attic 24 was going to be in near enough the same place on Friday, it's a pity we hadn't stayed longer as it would have been an amazing place for a Bloggy Meet...
P.S. Can anyone tell me why most of my writing on the right hand side -- blog lists , book lists etc have suddenly gone purple ?
