Over the years we have acquired bigger and better tents carpets slow cooker coffee maker heater lights oven better beds loads of pots and pans 3 kitchen stands 3 cupboards 2 tables better chars 2 electric cool box 2 windbreaks and much more so now we are  cutting down what we take

got a couple of new windbreaks arriving in a day or two and will also be grabbing some interlocking mats from Aldi on Thursday...the only other thing we're contemplating is a small foldable trolley for transporting either a heavy trugful of dirty dishes or a full water container a fair distance across a campsite...

Can I update mine please, I still want the vestibule for my Kampa Holkham ( but am not using that tent until August).
But hopefully tomorrow I will have something delivered ready for my trip this jubilee week - a shiny new 3 way fridge . I really, really wanted one and managed to convince Mr Dozy that the electric outwell cool box , really was too small for a week with 4 of us ..... Very happy Dozy.
- a smaller item on my wish list was a pretty flowery cotton windbreak to replace my striped beach style one. I was very lucky to be given one for my birthday by some madboyz, thanks guys luv ya lots.

There is a load more stuff on my list - but for now I must be good......... ?

Life should not be measured by the amount of breaths we take but the moments that take your breath away.

Dozy, I have just bought the 5-in-1 couch today,  In which I have been after for ages..

My DS, is trying to bag it for his bed.   Ha, no chance. But there again, It could mean one less bed.

The rest, will have to remain in my dreams.

After my latest camping trip, this is my new wish list:

1) A decent tin opener that works!

2) A smaller BBQ - the "V" shaped type

3) A camping cupboard

4) A collapsing bin stand

5) Two flexi trugs (one to use instead of a square washing up bowl)

6) 3 x Microfibre towels

Be warned that the collapsible bin is quite flimsy, I broke mine during its second outing.

Get big bin bags so that you do not need to stretch it over the bin.

Otherwise you would risk breaking the lid retainer if you are not careful, which is what happened to me.

My realistic wish list:
Er, none!
But just treated ourselves to a Quest multi-height small table for books and mags etc

My 'sigh/if only' list:
  • Thermarest Dreamtime x 2
  • Dutch tent for touring France and weekends
  • Icey Tek Coleman double mantle lantern or a Northstar or a Petromax hurricane lamp

  • Enough time and money to go away more often
