Road Trip!

Just a quick pop in to let you know how giddy with excitement I am this afternoon. Tomorrow we are off for the bank holiday weekend in Betty. We are staying here. Not too far away from where we live, but hopefully a lovely relaxing environment for the kids (and us) to play. We plan to take in the Bodmin Steam RailwayPadstow, maybe Eden Project (we have return tickets) and cycling part of the Camel Trail. The weather looks promising too.

I have packed enough marshmallows to sink a ship, because we can have open camp fires at the site. There is beer for the grown ups. I have baked flap jacks, sunshine shorties and muesli bars. The van is stuffed with blankets and big cosy throws for chilly evenings under the stars.

My bag is packed with book club book, the new Mark Haddon, a magazine and my journal. It's a very optimistic pack - you just know my bag will remain untouched! It is only a weekend camp after all. It's also a trial run for France in July. We are enthusiastic but slightly nervous campers!

I can guarantee that I will bombard you with tales and pictures galore. So as as the line from a popular comedy here in the UK goes "bear with." I promise not to get too carried away.

So have a great weekend. Think of me bearing a torch, guiding a child to the conveniences at some ungodly hour.
