So, back home after yet another short break camping trip over the bank holiday weekend, meeting up with camping friends.
Despite predictions to the contrary, the weather for the first few days was lovely.......hot and sunny.
Of course it all went pear-shaped on Sunday night, and yesterday morning we woke to found a duck lake on the pitch next to us.
A large proportion of the tent campers were soaked to the skin, as even built-in groundsheets struggle to cope with the inches of rain which fell overnight. However, as yesterday was 'going home' day, a spirit of stoic cheerfulness prevailed, and at the washing up area people were singing a medley of songs including "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life", Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" and the ever popular camping classic, "Singing In The Rain".
Small dog, of course, had a great time, renewing her acquaintance with doggy friends, going for walks round the lake and as a special treat, her very own ice cream.
In the cool of the evenings, she then modelled her new hooded fleece jumper, looking just like Little Red Riding Hoolf.
She is now assiduously catching up on her naps while we get back to work.
It's a dog's life..................
