Camping in cold weather…

As we say to our boys, there are only two more ‘sleeps’ till we go on our first camping trip of the year! Lots of packing to do but the idea is to go fairly light, mainly so we don’t have to shift so much stuff when we get to the site and also we’re limited by the size of our Citroen C1! We’re only going for the weekend so no need to go crazy.

Anyway, the weather here has gone from being cold and very wet, for the past 4 weeks, to clear skies and sunny since yesterday. This is very good news for camping but when I first saved the draft of this post, the last thing I was thinking about was dealing with heat, more about how to deal with the cold.

Following along those chilly lines, we did some research into cold weather camping, just to make sure we were all nice and warm at night – there’s nothing worse than bad sleep when camping to tire you out, especially having been running around after the kids all day!



12 hour sleep Jac…!

Oh my god!

Jac slept for 12 hours last night, in his own bed! Pretty much anyone with kids will know how amazing that is. What a feeling having a full night of uninterrupted sleep. 7.30 pm till 7.30 am.

I’m looking forward to many more nights like that : )


Jamie sleeping…

Not quite sure what’s happening but for the last 4 nights, Jamie has slept in his own room all night and used the upstairs toilet first thing in the morning, by himself.

This morning was really weird as he slept in his own room, used the toilet, then went back to his room and played in there till after we got up. To make it even better, Jac didn’t even wake up till after 8!

It’s the best nights sleep we’ve had for ages. It’s a little glimpse of what it could be like – happy days!
