Eagle-eyed regular visitors, if there are any, will have noticed an absence of activity here recently. For a change this is not a result of idleness or ennui, but a result of me spending the last few nights in a tent in a field in Dorset.
Camping is not my idea of a good time, but Jayne loves it so I gave in. It was just the three of us, because the girl is away on a two-week army cadet annual camp, but this was probably harder than if there had been four of us – I think the boy got a bit bored with only adult company.
I can see the appeal of being away from electricity as it means no computers, television or mobile phone charging, so it should be easier to relax, but against that you have to consider the reliance on public toilets and living in a goldfish bowl where everyone else can see and hear what you are doing all the time.
I did take the opportunity of getting loads of photos… I shall be spending most of the evening uploading them all to Flickr.
