We hired a camper van and were so excited to take our 3-year-old son away. We drove to Kielder Forest and found a lovely campsite and had tea in a local pub but couldn’t work out why the locals were wearing bee keeper outfits.
After putting ourselves to bed, we opened the skylight window to look at the stars. At which point three million midges made a mad dash to get in (Argh that was why people were wearing those outfits!). After trying to throw himself out of the roof hole a few times our son threw up over all the bedding.
I thought my husband was having a good time, so I didn’t want to mention. I thought it was hideous. He thought I was having a good time, but later told me he thought it was like sleeping in a family catacomb and hated every second. We were booked for three nights, we got up at 6 am after night one. Without saying a word we drove home stopping for a slap up breakfast on the way and parked the van outside the house for 2 days.
