I’m the kind of person who needs a project. Whether it’s demolishing walls or learning a new craft, I like to feel I have something on the boil, challenging me, making me think. Otherwise I get a bit restless, bored, then melancholic and then just downright fed up. Throughout the Summer work goes a little quiet, the ‘order adrenaline’ ebbs off and it seems the natural time to find a project. This year I have decided to go camping (well actually) Glamping!
A few friends have invested in canvas Bell Tents and I have to admit am a little envious. As a child I spent my summers in France mostly sleeping under canvas with my sister (who used to scare the living wits out of me). Like most children, I took these endless Summers for granted, but I now realise just how lucky I was! The freedom to play outside all day until bedtime, BBQ’s every evening and being out in the elements to witness the most captivating sunsets and frightening of thunderstorms. These memories, I will carry for life and I feel strongly it is my duty to pass a little bit of this on to my new family. So we are going to get a bell tent of our very own and I have had great fun in compiling this wish list…
Do you camp or glamp, or you are lucky enough to have your own Bell Tent? I would love to hear about your experiences and adventures, or even if you have a favourite spot you think we should explore!!
As I do with every new thing in my life I took to Pinterest and have been compiling a comprehensive glamping board on Pinterest here. It’s not just the pretty stuff too, there’s even some pratical stuff like stoves and collapsible kettles on there, although there’s a fair bit of bunting and twinkly lights!
