I have just pledged to camp out on June 28. That is a Saturday and will be during the school holidays. Luckily, this was already on my list of things to do during the break, so I am somewhat mentally prepared to be camping with 3 boys, ages 7 and under. We also have a camp shower just begging to be used, laying in wait in the pantry, and the boys will love that. Actually, Husband and I love it, too. We have no close neighbours, so nuding it up and running outside to use a pitiful shower tube is (what the?) kind of fun. Add in a few glasses of wine and it will be a blast.
Weather permitting, we can do some star gazing, and if the ipad ever starts working again, useless piece of fuckery that it is, we will use the app that tells us which star is what and where the satellites will be. Then the nocturnal birdlife will come out and scare us all to pieces and we will burrow down in our sleeping bags, or doonas and throw rugs and pillows and stuffed animals, whichever applies.
It will also give us practice for when we go real camping over the Independence Day long weekend. Miles from anywhere and we have to bring in everything, including our own firewood. And machetes, since Husband took pleasure in telling me that there will probably be rattlesnakes. Bloody hell.
Anyhoo, what a fun weekend.
