Oh yes, and…..
… while we were away we happened upon a tent show, with loads and loads of tents all set up in a big field. So we had a lovely time going in and out of all of them and had almost decided that the 2-centre-hooped version of Jax’s would suit us when we happened upon the Outwell Hartford XXL which we really loved. Its an all stitched together with a top sheet one, like the one we have, which we like and i was rather dreading having to do groundsheets and gaps and its a hexagon with 4 sleepnig pods (which would NOT fit 3 people in each lol!) and there is a little front porch and a back door. Somehow it doesn’t seem to take up much space from the outside but is really nice and roomy inside and the sales bloke suggested actually turning it round and using the porch as a kitchen area and the backdoor as the entrance. Worked for me, we really fell in love with it and i think we will be getting one asap. Its actually now cheaper than on that site too, £340 i think.
Had a doo-doo-dah-dah moment when we went past a campsite and saw Alison’s tent, Jan’s tent, Katy’s tent and my tent all camped in a circle with a load of kids running about – i felt like i had accidently missed something!!!
