Toasting Marshmallows over our colandar fire pit, after a short walk through the trees beside the local allotments, C grinned and said,
“It doesn’t feel like we’re at home does it?!”
D gave out a cheeky giggle as he managed to set his marshmallow on fire (again!) waving his sugary fire stick around like some kind of medieval torch and Little Miss A’s eyes widened with the sugar rush as she popped another marshmallow onto her stick.
The schools had closed, social distancing was advised and the UK lockdown, to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus, was imminent.
However we were due to have our first campervan adventure of the year that weekend, and nothing was getting in the way of that!
We weren’t able to stick to the original plans of visiting the holiday park that we’d booked, but we set up our campervan pitch on the driveway at home and began our 2020 campervan adventures.
Later that evening, whilst snuggled together, all cosy under the blankets in the campervan, Little Miss gave me a sleepy smile and whispered,
“I love our holidays”.
We’d laughed, we’d played, we’d explored, Mummy had got stressed making tea in the van, whilst trying to make sure none of the Tiny Travellers wandered off too far, we’d chatted and snuggled together in our little van.
It was just like our real campervan adventures, and as much as we love exploring and visiting new places, we were reminded that it’s not all about where you go, it’s who you’re with!
Whether you’re in a van on your driveway, pitching a tent in the back garden or creating a tent in your home, as soon as you close those doors and snuggle up with your loved ones, you could be anywhere!
