Glamping. A child’s perspective …
We have fun glamping
We have the glamping tents up lots
It’s real cool
Raining or sunny
They are so much fun
A place to chill
‘specially us boy cousins
That’s the very “bestest fun”
All you need are sheets and cushions
Grandma always has heaps for us to play with
They are her old sheets for fun stuff
Maybe even Grandma’s patchwork quilt if we can get it before she looks
We can make a BIG tent with LoTS of sheets for us ALL
We can make LITTLE tents for one person
We use Grandma’s laundry Airer and lots of pegs
You have to fix the sheets to stay there
Grandma pegs the sheets to lots of things
Like the door handles and hooks on the wall and clips it in the windows
It’s funny when Grandma has to crawl in the tent ’cause she is big
We go Glamping on grandma’s back verandah.
No pause button here. Beautiful endless youthful energy. Precious.
We have our own door too, which makes it more fun.
Because “us” boys have discovered that with a click we have our own “house” When the adults were talking we giggled and locked our door
“Hmmm…unlock the door please” they said
But that’s no fun!
We can make a HUGE tent outside too in a tree that has pink flowers in the hot sun. It has a funny name. Grandma knows what sort it is.
Really fun this sort of Glamping
We just have to get to Grandpa and Grandma’s house….
“Please can we go mum”

Reflection… Now this story started after our birthday cum Father’s Day family get together this last weekend. I was thinking back to our lovely time spent together. Then I thought “O bother” now why didn’t I take a photo of the lovingly laid out table. So a hasty email was sent “Hi Paula, any chance […] Continue reading →
