Normally we arrange a little trip during this half term break where we brush off the cobwebs from the tent, oil up the trailer and venture out for a camping trip to either Lyme Regis or the surrounding area in Dorset. I am so glad we didn't this year, the weather is truly awful! High winds and a lot of rain today and forecasted for the weekend. I was only thinking today of all those families who have ventured out for the first time camping feeling very cold, damp and dis-heartened, my heart goes out to them as I've been in that position before.
Thinking on the other side of the coin though, at least we are saving our pennies for a summer holiday - wherever that maybe this year as we've not planned a thing!
Off to snuggle back under the blanket and watch a bit of TV.
