Sunny here at the moment. I was going to pack up and take the tent for a few days to mid Wales. Leaving my wife to get to grips with the new kitchen that finishes today. But seeing the weather forecast that’s now deferred until Saturday.

I am borrowing my granddaughters 3 man tent which is easy to put up. I looked at prices for the Vango Skye air but will wait until they drop in the Autumn. The tent can be seen in the picture when I took my granddaughter and her friend to Forest of Dean recently.

Yes the kitchen looks great but its been a long four weeks living off of what we could squeeze onto the dining room table with the microwave. Prior to that we had four weeks when our daughters kitchen was being installed and they came here for meals. Looking for some peace and quiet now.

In the end I called into GoOutdoors Cardiff and bought a slightly smaller 3 person tent but one with a 5000 hydrostatic head, compared to my granddaughters tent which had 3000 mm. It was pretty good weather only a few showers. Sleeping not a problem. In recognition of my aging joints I used a single air bed topped with a 25mm Duvalay. Extremely comfortable. Sleeping bag is 3-4 seasons so no problem keeping warm. The reverse in fact. Cooking a single camping gaz burner, plus a single burner stove. Diet…… basic apart from pub eats. Overall a relaxing experience, but did miss not having the dogs. But saying that I walked more than they are now capable of.
Main problem now is trying to fit in another break, similar to when we had the caravan. But zero worries about damp, payload, etc.

PS edit ablutions not formally recognised along with chin hair.
