Things I have learnt from Sleeping in a Tent
Last Saturday Top Ender was being very sweet and said that as part of Mummy Daughter Date night, she would love to camp in the back garden with me. I don't think that she knew that I would be able to resist the way she asked (with innocence and love) and so secretly arranged with Daddy that we would camp in the back garden.
I know that you are probably all bored to death of me and my Flip, but I did take a few minutes of footage on it because I like things that make nice noises and that I get given without knowing about. So this was how we let Top Ender know what was going on.
But I know that you are wanting to know more about these useful things I have learnt from Sleeping in a Tent and so here they are. I hope that one day you find them useful.
Buy a Pop Up Tent. They make things easy.
Don't pitch a tent on a hill. Children roll in their sleep
Neighbours will have parties that are really loud when you want to go to sleep
When Chickens lay eggs they cluck really loudly
Neighbours who are in their garden chatting at 3am don't realise that other people might be listening in
Children don't understand about personal space boundaries
Children will wake you up if they think they have to tell you something
It gets bright really early in the Summer
Tents are not designed for tall people
Dogs bark really loudly at Cats
Cats meow really loudly at Dogs
The Dawn Chorus is loud. And at Dawn.
But the best thing I learnt was you should always have something handy with which to film something.
