-16 in a tent when I was 14 8O

School "organized" Duke of Edinburgh camping trip just north of Loch Lomond :clown:

The tents were like hardboard and we had to break ice to get water from a stream :wink:

I've taken on some more "insulation" since then, about 3 stone :lol:

Now, bout these eggs?
Do you mean the donating an egg to a children's hospital suggestion?
Well we've got to take one each for our boys so I was going to put an extra one in anyway.
I've also made a Simnel cake to share around! Yummy!
Anyone allergic to almonds? :?
That was eggactly what i was referring to, the donating thing, will pack a couple extra then :wink:

And nope, not allergic to almonds either.

Really looking fprward to the first camp out in the bus, only taken 3 years to get to it!!
And i've got loads to tidy up yet
