Love the alphabet tiles...problem is it would take ages for my wife to get them in the correct order.
Ive just been to Lidl this morning as I wanted a new camping parasol. I've actually bought a roll of that green matting. It would be great for the front of your tent Gilly as its actually more like a long roll of green doormat rather than grass - its def not the stuff like you would see in the green grocers. My only concern with it would be using it again if it gets really mucky
I prefer the ones without holes as the mud/grass tend to come up through them and they can be a problem to clean. The ones I use are completely waterproof and come in more interesting colours - plus a bag to keep them in.
just been to lidls and bought the green matting .... we go tomorrow so it was a case of beggars cant be choosers i will take what i can..... i have to say though i am impressed with the 'grass' and i think it will probably wash with a yard brush when we get it home ........ my tent is still up in the garden (yes the one we are taking to france is still up soaking wet in the back garden)so i am off to cut a length so we dont have to take it all ......... i think my new crocs will look gorgeous on my new mat
------------- A tent is like a newborn born baby..... to some they all look the same..... but if its yours it's beautiful.

I also bought 6 more rolls of the green matting from Lidl today - absolutely love it and now have 11 rolls of it!!!!! It scrubs clean really well - if you can, leave it to dry and then hoover it to get the mud off and then I use 1001 carpet cleaner and a brush!!
