Anyone who has visited this blog much over the past few years will have noticed that I’ve really slowed down my posting of late. Initially, I put this down to the fact that my decision to re-focus the site on camping rather than parenting – as much as I love camping, it’s not something I get to do very often these days, so my focus on it can be limited. But while taking a morning walk this morning (something I also don’t get to do as often as I used to, sadly) I got to thinking about why my focus on blogging might have waned, and I think it might be due to more than just the topic I write abou ..read more

For the half-dozen or so regular readers of this site (I’m not looking for sympathy here – having ANY regular visitors is more than I deserve, based on the infrequency of my posting) you will know that I’ve been posting about my adventures in camping for the last couple of years. I took the slight left-turn into camping when I realised that my days as a ‘parent blogger’ were over, and I’ve not looked back since.

Family Camping for Beginners – A Guide to Buying a New Tent

After nearly 10 years of faithful service, our trusty Zenobia 6 tent looks like it might be on its way out. On our most recent trip, not only did we find quite a bit of rain coming through the roof at night, we’ve also got a couple of tent poles that needed drastic running repairs. All in all, this year might be the last time we trust it for our camping shelter needs. After a recent trip to ‘Go Outdoors’ to look at the sort of tents we might replace it with – and to decide whether we still need one big, family tent (or should get the boys a smaller tent of their own) it struck me that there ar ..read more

With the arrival of summer, one of the things we like to do the most is enjoy the sun. There is no doubt that good weather changes the mood, makes us happier and more willing to go out. And it is that the sun provides us with 90% of vitamin D that our body needs, thus favoring the secretion of dopamine and serotonin, the so-called hormones of happiness. However, and despite the fact that the sun helps us in many ways, it also has its negative side. Especially when we do not take the necessary precautions, since the sun’s rays can affect our skin causing burns, spots and increasing the risk of ..read more
