10 things I love about camping

  1. Wearing Crocs, socks and three-quarter length trousers and not giving a fig what I look like.
  2. Strong coffee in the morning sun.
  3. The children making friends.
  4. No e-mails or phone calls.
  5. Reading Harry Potter to the children by torch-light as they snuggle in their sleeping bags.
  6. Nosing at other people's tents, deciding what make I'll buy next time, checking out the best pitches.
  7. Drinking red wine from a mug.
  8. Sitting outside my tent, other people sitting outside theirs, chatting with people as we pass, the sense of community.
  9. My daughter's excitement at meeting new people, especially new people with dogs.
  10. Being 'in touch' with the weather.
