"What I Did on my Holidays."

First day of term and the kids have gone back to school. Yeah!!!!

Traditionally in UK schools the teachers always set a "What I Did on my Holidays" essay when the kids go back to school. I'm not going to write this, but I'd like to show you all a video of one of the things we have to do regularly on our camping holidays which is to set up our big Conway Camargue trailer tent. This video surfaced on a tape we thought we'd lost so it's about four years old. The kids you can see (occasionally) helping are Lad and Princess. The reason that there are cars crossing in front of the camcorder is because we had to set it up on the opposite side of one of the campsite roads. Sorry.

The whole process usually takes a good hour or so, normally. But at least it wasn't raining!

That's awesome! Are you going to allow the kids to submit the video rather than the essay?

Funny...I couldn't help but think if Benny Hill while watching the video!!!

Fabulous! I will show Bill tomorrow. We may not have been quite so competent, but we did have to set ours up in a howling gale and torrential rain, the one time we did it without you!
We were right not to bring it here with us, the roads aren't conducive, but when we have to stay in expensive hotels, or tatty cabanas, I miss it.

I don't 'do' Dad finished off my enjoyment of that type of holiday! However, I really enjoyed watching your movie, looks like a very impressive tent!
