creative bloomings summer camp challenge badge

Creative Bloomings is taking us to camp in a July Challenge to write every day.  My literal mind came up with this.

Holiday time

Unpack the tent to find a hole.
Mend the tent.
Pack the tent.
Pack some food
and something to cook it in,
eat it from, wash up in;
wellies,  waterproofs,
sleeping bags,
rugs and warm clothes.
Maps, musical instruments
and lego in the car
to amuse the kids on the journey.

Hang on a minute.
Must I?
Couldn’t I
have a five star hotel
with en-suite bathrooms
and someone else to cook
and make proper beds
and clean up after me?


The story of my life.
Oh well, I can dream.

    I don’t like hotels – no freedom to go and do what you please. Camper van is the way we holiday at the moment although we did wild camp with 3 boys in 2 tents earlier in the year. S

    I can so relate to this and that was only last year. 🙂 Good one, Viv.

    Oh, I’m with you on this. Luxe showers, fluffy comforters, white, white towels. Room service. Yep, beats trecking to the toilet with a flashlight.

    I reckon there comes a time when a girl just has to say ‘enough is enough, and sleeping on a rock just doesn’t cut it anymore’. 🙂
