VIDEO: CAMPING EQUIPMENT



I made this video to show some of the bits and pieces we take on a weekend camping trip, very fun video to make on a drizzly day! We'll be back in the tent in a weeks time for our annual trip away with my family - this time we'll be staying in our brand new tent that inflates (!!). I'll have to do a timelapse of it going up because apparently it only takes 8 minutes - less time then it takes to boil our camping kettle. Will report back, fingers crossed it goes up ok and here's hoping the sun makes an appearance!

CAMPING IN KENT

We packed the tent up in the car again this past weekend and took ourselves off to Kent for a couple of nights. It's the last time we'll use the tent given to us by Steven's sister before we get our own shiny new one that's all singing and dancing. Yep, we have become those saddo's perving on other peoples tents at the campsite...and yes we have been known to spend our evenings watching youtube videos of people putting up tents to make sure we pick the right one. We'll be getting a roof box for the car next (we totally are).

We went to Oldbury Hill Campsite which is part of The Camping and Caravanning Club so a few rules and regulations to abide by but the site was actually really lovely and in a beautiful part of Kent. Nestled right bang in the middle of some woods and a National Trust trail - fully equipped with rope swing (duly noted that we are way too old to go on a rope swing) we had a great time wandering around and enjoying the summer sun.

Not too far away is Igtham mote which had the annual summer celebrations on and beautiful grounds with different length walks - would definitely recommend if you're in the area. 
And of course, chips for tea on Friday night from the local chippy. Can't beat it.

We have a few more camping trips coming up in the next couple of months which we're really looking forward to, although I am slightly worried this weather might wear itself out by then!

I tell you what though, the worst thing about going away on a mini holiday is that the whole of Monday being back at work is the absolute pits!

I've been updating my YouTube channel quite regularly with various videos of life and other things and I'm currently editing a camping one which should be up later on this week. You can have a little look at it right here...please do subscribe if you like it. Thanks!

My beautiful friend Liz got married last week so I thought I'd share a few snaps from the day. 
They got married at a castle in Kent, it was a beautiful day filled with lots of love and plenty of laughter - I know people say that about every wedding but this was a really special one and I'm over the moon that I got to see my pal get married.

SCOTNEY CASTLE, KENT

Scotney Castle, Kent

Last week we both took the day off work to celebrate my birthday and Steven surprised me with a picnic and day out at Scotney Castle in Kent.

The grounds are so beautiful and the old castle that was left to ruin has a moat around it! A moat! The new house on the top of the hill is a bit of a mis-match of eras and style and the former owner, Betty (who died in 2006), her cat still lives there.

We had a lovely day pottering around and the weather was just perfect. I wish we could take Wednesday off every week!

I made a little video of our day which you can see below - I've also been uploading a couple of new videos on my YouTube channel if you'd like to take a look - here. I'm trying to make one video a week so I can learn the software a bit better and so far, so good!
