the peaks

i feel i've just about recovered for our recent camping trip, the drive up to the peaks was not the best start, what should have been a four hour drive took us eight hours!!! not much fun, then unfortunately we had to pitch our tent in rain, which meant quite a bit of water got in, thank goodness our friends were already pitched up & were able to offer the kids a dry place to shelter & some sausage sarnies to tuck into, the weather did improve, although it was rather a mixed bag, with good company & some breathtaking countryside we still all had a great time,  the hubs was very pleased to have his cosy new cardi to keep out the chills, this was another project that took far longer than it should have done, but was worth all that hard work, as it fits & he's really happy with it

  1. 8 hours, it is a wonder you didn't abandon the vehicle. We once got caught in a traffic jam on the M25, which was nothing like the length of journey you experienced but I can honestly say the best behaved person in the car was the 18 month old. The rest of us were behaving like toddlers!

  5. 8 hours in the car does not sound like fun, never mind it looks like you still managed to have fun. The cardi looks great I don't think I have enough staying power for something like that. Sarah x
